Bread mold and you (and me).

I have just discovered a huge vast field of evolutionary biology. It has its own language but is amazing. Life forms (animal AND plant AND fungal, bacterial and others I cannot pronounce are all related. Really. It's science. There's evidence. I feel less alone already.
But I needed to look up these words to read an article called Molecules as Documents of Evolutionary History.
semantides aka semantophoretic molecules
aufgehoben (constantly abolished and simultaneously preserved)
episemantic molecules (which really don't have good on-line definitions)
asemantic molecules (which also don't have good on-line definitions)
