Unlike Earth, this organism has no DNA, One big ribosome and Golgi apparatus, and the vacuole and 'mitochondrian' is connected by a tube called the via. The 'DNA' is really a ring of genetic material called the gene ring. The big ribosome reads each section of the gene-ring and makes proteins, just like earth cells. But instead of many ribosomes, its just one big one connected directly to the gene-ring. As the ring spins it, it reads the section and sends the proteins to the 'Golgi Apparatus'; we will call it the fedexon (named after FedEx). The fedexon then takes the molecules and makes of the eocyto with it. In case a part dies, the fedexon will release a corresponding part and a lysosome will take it and put it in its spot. The fedexon will store unneeded parts. The via transfers nutrients and energy from the factorian (mitochondrian) to the vacuole. The vacuole releases the energy into the eocyto.
This organism is the first organism on Xylos 4. It formed a hundred years after a comet laden with rich organic molecules. There was one type of molecule that is abundant in Xylos's local star system called celoxine. Celoxine is a catalyst that is only in that star system. The comet had about 15 lbs of it, Enough to accelerate evolution for millions of years. The eocyto absorbed the molecules found in the primordial sea. The molecules were often attached to celoxine. But at about 1000 AC, another meteor hit the ocean. The blast created a lagoon, in which had only a few thousand eocyto. The energy from the explosion altered about 500 bacteria. All five hundred were dividing. The mutation caused a change. The organisms couldn't make energy without sunlight. The first autotrophs. But these weren't full fledged photo synthesizers. They did not absorb water to do the energy process. Soon a small mutation in the membrane caused water to leak in and help produce more energy. But soon the molecules in the sea were disappearing (except for the celoxine of course. most of it was at the bottom of the sea or on land). A mutation in the vacuole, via, and factorian made the order jumble up. The via was connected to the membrane, the factorian was connected to directly to the via and vacuole. And oddly enough the xeno-bacteria were mistaking smaller eocyto for molecules! So they 'eat' the eocyto, both normal and photosynthetic. After the mutated evolved with the help of celoxine, they evolved into two different species. The cell eaters, or cytophagis, were eating the eocyto to extinction, while the plant like cells, or photophagis were becoming more abundant and out competing the cell. They went extinct around 300,000 AE (after evolution)(3,000,000 AC).
