I like that Analogy ...hard to imagine the transition from non-living toliving is a Bright LineExcept for those who can only think in terms of voila! moments. If something is complex, how could it possibly be the product of simpler steps? A star forming from space gas and dust? No way!http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/02/090219105324.ht..."While the ribosome is a complex structure it features a clear hierarchy that emerged based on basic chemical principles," says Sergey Steinberg, a Université de Montréal biochemistry professor who made his discovery with student Konstantin Bokov. "In the absence of such explanations, some people could imagine unseen forces at work when such complex structures emerge in nature."I've always been fascinated by prions. A non living infection, that propagates by transmitting the misfolded protein state to properly folded proteins.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prion
