In and out, in and out. Staying alive is about doing things. This very second, your cells are combusting glucose molecules with oxygen to make energy available, which keeps you alive for another precious moment. To get the oxygen to your cells you are breathing.
Breathing is an answer to a very hard problem: How do you get the resources that your cells need to survive, from the outside, to the inside of your cells? Every living thing has to solve this problem and the solution is surprisingly different depending on one of the most important regulators of life: Size.

    this has to be one of the best channels ive ever subscripted to. not only does it explain tons of intriguing topics in science, but it does it in a fun way. thanks to all the people that help make these videos. i have a suggestion for a video that might be very interesting as well. it has to do with the topic of sound and space. i read somewhere that it might be possible to make a black hole due to a loud enough sound to literally create gravity. is that true? and if so, HOW ??? once again, i love this channel and thank youuuuuuuuu

    Diffusion is also dependent on pressure gradients. So if we build a machine which can increase our size and build another machine which can adjust air pressure one attached with a suit which we can wear after going big, we can potentially by pass square cube law.



















    But still we will fail to one of the fundamental forces of nature....Gravity.

It's called Thiomargarita namibiensis and it is large enough to be visible to the naked eye. I'd call that pretty impressive!

    Kurzgesagt should be ashamed to support Evolution when it is just merely a theory that will not ever be proven. The reason is because everything is based on a design and thus there is a designer behind the design(s). Life was based on a design and thus, there is a designer behind it!

    Well, I think Kurzgesagt might have messed up with a chicken-or-egg problem. It was because single cell organisms started forming colonies and eventually into multicellular organisms that they gained an advantage, but not the other way round. Going multicellular has nothing to do with larger individual cells.
