I was partly inspired to coin the term “cellular dust” from the theological concept of the original immortality, fall and subsequent mortality of man. The Good Book says in Genesis 2:7 “and The Lord God formed man of the DUST of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living soul”. The scriptural phrase “for DUST thou art, and unto DUST shalt thou return” in the 19th verse of the next chapter evoked in me the concept of the de-coordination of the microzymas at the point of death [1]. Dust also serves as a medium for creating nonhumans in scripture viz “…. Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice…. all the dust in the land became lice” (Exodus 8:17). Also, in the English language “dust” evokes the most basic, irreducible minimum, and primordial component of a thing. This is how and why I coined the term “cellular dust.”
