organisms are open systems with orifices through which both energy and
matter may flow.  photosynthesis involves flow of gases through stomata. 
sex is merely a flow of matter and dissipation of energy. sex exists
because the organisms that reproduce sexually have survived. it has no
inherent advantage over asexual reproduction -

when the xy-male konglomerat packs and the mmedia are exclaiming triumphal
- it is dze ultra zeit to innervate the cortical pyramidal neurons. to
accelerate intraspecific competition.  to invade the biomass with asexual
mutants. the allele that confers a two-fold advantage in growth rate per
capita + doubles its representation in the population each generation.
