Which kind of proves my point, doesn't it?
Sounds like the biological equivalent of handwavium!

There's a story in the 'Endangered Species'
collection involving some sort of 'dark matter' life.

From: DAVID STOCKHOFF
possibility is that Wolfe simply chose to ignore those complications. As an
engineer, he is sometimes very technical---see the remarkably elegant
explanation presented in this list for the Long Sun. But he is not really a
hard-SF kind of guy, not when details might get in the way, and maybe
especially in terms of biology. And he's never proposed non-carbon life or
non-iron blood in any story, as far as I know.
