Recently there have been rapid advances in the field of artificial morphogenesis (or synthetic
life as it is commonly known): the process of growing systems in a similar way to the
construction of biological structures. This field is still in its infancy, but there would seem to be
nothing to prevent growing macroscopic objects from cell-sized nanoclusters. There are many
difficult problems to be overcome in this area, but it can already be seen that morphogenetic
technology will have a profound effect on all aspects of life.
