The first living organism is formed. It divides. Now there are two living organisms. When did life enter into the second organism?
Were both lives present at the same time when the second cell was still part of the first? Two lives in one cell? Or did the second cell officially receive a life of it's own after separation?
A third possibility, the one that I am entertaining, is that the life of the second cell is an extension of the first life. This possibility opens up the door to some interesting ideas.
