So David you don't think that at any one time there are at least a billion germ-line cells dividing?

And genome search uses "search" as in the computing term for the mechanical sorting and sifting of vast amounts of data or scanning a probability tree. Evolution is a massive parallel search for life forms that optimally fit the current environment. That search does not end as the natural environment changes and each generation of life creates a new biosphere context.
