Physics books may be complicated, but … the objects and phenomena that a physics book describes are simpler than a single cell in the body of its author.

And this figure is for each cell, not all the cells of the body put together.

Even most bacteria require several thousand genes to carry out the functions necessary for life…. The simplest species of bacteria, Chlamydia and Rickettsia [which are] about as small as it is possible to be and still be living … require millions of atomic parts…. All of the many macromolecules necessary for life are constructed of atoms … composed of even smaller parts … and the only debate is how many millions of functionally integrated parts are necessary….
