»The inosculation of every living creature is directly connected with its life. The inosculation signifies new born of genetic trait to microorganism and survival tactic securing the diversity to non-generative functioned microorganism. In the barren land, the organisms strengthen the immunity through the inosculation. The newly produced factors increases geometrically with constant specialization. In fact, the evolution in nature is the history of hybridism, and the main point of it is not the inosculation itself, but the creativity in its process.«
