The possibility that some of them were made without circuit boards was what gave it away.

I can't reconcile this. It's part of a plant or animal, but it's not part of an animal or part of a plant. I'd think it was like, flour or yeah cereal or whatever, but you also said it has living cells and cereal would be dead cells anyway.

I think he's saying it's a part of an animal but not something that would typically be called a "body part."
