I also wonder this, I've been researching and googling but there only the conclusions that nothing can survive in a highly alkaline environment, but nowhere it really explains how.

This is peculiar because our bodies are slightly alkaline. Luckily we have a nice system of buffers, which we will probably learn the Henderson hasselbach equation for, which keep our bodies at a ph of 7.4.
