Plants with leaves no more efficient than today’s
solar cells could out-compete real plants, crowding the biosphere with an inedible foliage. Tough omnivorous
bacteria could out-compete real bacteria: They could spread like blowing pollen,
replicate swiftly and reduce the biosphere to dust in a matter of days. Dangerous replicators could easily be too

controlling viruses and fruit flies.
