An endolith, or cryptoendolith, is a type of archaea, bacteria, or fungus that lives inside rock. Endolithic life has been found more than 3 kilometers deep in the Earth’s crust. These organisms of the deep subsist without air, light, or water, likely dividing only one or two times per century.

I’m not really sure what to do with this site. I originally registered it so that I would have bandwidth and file space to host music under the name Endolith, but then never actually produced anything worth publishing, and it’s become Yet Another screenname instead. So now what? I’ve written a lot of little things that I’d like to post where others can find them, but nothing ever seems finished enough to publish…
