It doesn't translate that literally as 'cells' etc.
But the theory is full of holes - Azure's studying it technically with one

In most of the accounts 'sentient' doesn't figure into it at all. But
holarchic homeostatic system does.
Which leaves big problems re: pollutants, extinctions, etc. Not to mention
global warming and volcanic catastrophism.
Anyway the bulk of life is in rock strata, not scraping its way across the
surface the way we do.
