This is super fun. Kyle Hill relates cancer to StarCraft! Current cancer medicine has learned to respect the many diseases that we call “cancer” as a deadly form of evolution gone awry. Inside of a tumor, or among many tumor types in a single body, are cells fighting to survive, even if they ultimately do so at the expense of their host. When you play StarCraft, you’re learning this, whether you realize it or not.
"Cancer is a Zerg rush of the human body.
In form, function, and strategy, the Zerg of StarCraft were designed to overwhelm opponents with numbers and genetic versatility. In the canon, the Zerg sweep through the galaxy to assimilate the genetic material of the strongest species. They artificially select themselves to succeed, as we do with dogs or cabbage.”
