Biovorous ecophagy makes a nuclear winter look like a picnic in the park. Somebody needs to write an Einstein letter on this. Let's expand this page. I am starting this talk page for expansion of Wikipedia's Ecophagy page, and to encourage some brave soul to take a stand.

Einstein waited until atomic technology existed before writing his letter.


I read a book that talked about this, it intreaged me quite alot, thus, looked up, the gray goo sanireo and what-not to see what I could find, and it lead me rite here

The reason is the following excerpt from ecophagy article: "However, the word "ecophagy" is now applied more generally in reference to any event—nuclear war, the spread of monoculture, massive species extinctions—that might fundamentally alter the planet." Because of that quote, you can't merge the articles. You could edit this article to focus on the now more general reference, but not merge with the specific goo article.

Probably original research - moved from article[edit]

However, ecophagy is highly inprobable because bacteria and viruses are the perfect example of self-replicating organisms. They have been on Earth since the beginning of life on the planet, but still haven't managed to destroy it.

On another note, the idea of "grey goo" was one of these ideas that was mentioned off-hand by someone (not even anyone professionally related to the field) and the media grabbed it and ran with it. The general consensus in the nano-science now is that a "grey goo" phenomena is almost entirely gobble-dee-gook and it not a plausible possibility, even should such nano scale engineering become a reality. You will be hard-pressed to find a reputable scientist that will support the concept. I would support the removal of any mention of "grey-goo" from any serious article about nanoscience.
