Good one.

good video Kia, I love these explanations supported by drawings and photos, Cellular Life is a composite of more lives that work together in a coordinated way, A set of cells form organs and so on. I like to think of this complexity by subdividing the problem into function and structure. Where the function determines the structure. It is a very old idea, a little mystical if we want, but it can help to understand the complexity of Cellular Life.
