In hmolscience, panbioist (LH:2), from Greek pan- “all” + bio- “life” + -ist, meaning practitioner of the “ism”, refers to a person, e.g. Leibniz (1714), Haeckel (1862), Bray (1910), who believes that all things are “alive” in some sense, way, or another.
The following are related quotes:
- “Let us cut through all the talk and plainly state when life began. Drum roll, please. Life began when the first electron of either a hydrogen, an oxygen, or a nitrogen atom sought out to bond with a carbon atom. It was stimulated to do so, thus the first example of reacting to an external stimulus—the final requirement for life. In other words, consciousness (self-awareness), at its lowest common denominator, is seeking an electron bond with carbon. Once that first step was taken, the subsequent developments were a matter of complexity over time. The next step would be that molecules would avoid environments that threatened to destroy their electron bonds, such as the dehydrating effects of direct sunlight or too much hydration.”
