Model Virus that Self-Assembles when Shaken

It makes me think of the creationists’ argument where they ask, rhetorically, “what are the chances that a tornado tears through a junkyard and leaves a finished 747 in its wake?” Clearly this doesn’t prove that a tornado can whip up a jumbo jet. Rather, it helps us see that, given a bit of energy from a sun or your hand, some systems seem to naturally want to pull together and organize themselves in interesting and useful ways.
