These tiny crystalline organisms orbit the star Ameneline Theta with the end on the right facing the star. Electromagnetic (light, UV, infrared) and particulate (protons, electrons) radiation is captured in the funnel. The protons are captured in the matrix of palladium rods running lengthwise through the organism, inside of which the protons are pressed so closely together that some limited fusion reactions are possible. The electrons run between the palladium rods. Further fusion is used to synthesize all the elements needed for its growth. Excess energy is stored in the bumpy, left-hand end. To disguise their silhouettes from crystalvorous monsters, the loops on the left emit light to match as closely as possible the electromagnetic signature of the star. In this way, they use as much electromagnetic energy as they take in and survive off of particles only.
