organisms are open systems with orifices through 
which both energy and matter may flow.
photosynthesis involves flow of gases through stomata.
sex is merely a flow of matter and dissipation of energy. 
sex exists because the organisms that reproduce sexually 
have survived. it has no inherent advantage
over asexual reproduction - 

when the xy-male konglomerat packs and the mmedia are 
exclaiming triumphal - it is dze ultra zeit to innervate the cortical 
pyramidal neurons. to accelerate intraspecific competition.
to invade the biomass with asexual mutants. the allele that
confers a two-fold advantage in growth rate per capita + doubles 
its representation in the population each generation.
