the use of the word "we" above intrigues me.  what natural predator will
keep the deaggregation animal from overrunning our habitat?  filtering
will be like a broad spectrum poison, killing a little bit of everything.
who is this "we" that you think is going to do the right thing when all
of the wrong things are being done distantly from "us"?
