New cell weapons and defenses

(Steve) #21

If it is plausible it’s possible on another planet in my eyes.
If it isn’t possible maybe it could be a repulsion field where it slowly hurts cells and/or bacteria within a certain radius and makes them move away from you. This could go under defense instead of weapons since the damage would be minimal. Maybe if two cells both have this they negate each other and can attack each other or cells could evolve a way to ignore the electricity.


I don’t have anything to back this up but I would guess that a single cell has no way to generate enough current to actually affect anything. Electric eels have pretty large electric organs.

This cell organelle would only need to be powerful enough to have an effect on cells and bacteria. Even minor stimuli might scare off a cell.
