Naming NotesViruses have an uncanny ability of being unique, from all other organisms, in terms of how they function. They do not align themselves in accordance with the functionality of life, i.e., we still understand relatively very little about them, thus, they act in a heterodoxy like state in their interactions with their environment and other organisms.
