Ya think this could be the true moment of life?

Gastrulation: the moment when the hollow ball of cells called the blastocyst form their first recognizable, functional feature. I did not realize that something so important was created in us deuterosomes at such an early stage.

Two opposing points on the surface of the ball indent toward the center, eventually forming a hole. This hole in the blastocyst (called a blastopore) becomes the anus.

See? Choobus has been right all along.
