Description: Naturally-formed hollow metallic particulates provide an internal environment for vital metabolic processes at a precise temperature (and depth of ocean), although this gives these surfaces a finite lifespan of functionality. It is on the porous wall surface of this environment that the rhibozome makes copies of itself while having other aperature for the advancement of metabolic reactions (making more complex building blocks available) as well as affecting and maintaining concentration gradients across the porous wall to a limited degree. This is inefficient due to the inability to completely prevent diffusion through rigid, non-fluid and non-self-sealing pores, but it still increases the survival chances of all inhabitants of the cooperative system of species. Other species provide other functions within the particulate micro environment.
They also concentrate and isolate certain harmful substances into inert molecules, in the form of drops, grains or crystals. Some can be expelled naturally with time while some just need to be isolated via this process of concentration though they will overburden the precipitate particle with time.
