Diffusion and concentration gradient

... in high concentrations where O2 wants to go is very counterintuitive, because both are molecules that take up space and intuitively should "repel" one another... And instead of that each type of molecule simply 'ignores' the presence of other types. Thanks in advance for your insights.

The big Challenge in Biology

... moments and charges, and you have nucleic acids forming. They swarm over each other. Matching charges to charges. Some connect, while others repel. Nothing is 'being degraded' at this point in time, but just transferred from one molecule to the next. There is no replication that is pre-ordained. ...
