currently i believe that life was “introduced” to the sun- earth ecosystem by some kind of delivery device. or a life generating mechanism evolved with the earth and/or system as it developed.
delivered would be by comet or some other phenomena. maybe even directly from interaction with “extremely elementary” particles that can survive singularity. maybe the life mechanism begins at a sub sub sub atomic level which can survive passing through a black hole or between universes. this would give this life generating mechanism longer than the age of the universe to evolve into a robust “seeding” device for varied environments . it is possible that the universe may widely produce this “seed” of life.
the “seed” may be the code or that which produces this code or design mechanism. the code being a life producing, designing and evolving mechanism. we observe the code in our life as dna.
a key theory im drawn to is if this life mechanism can survive singularity, it can be older than the universe. thus giving it to more time to evolve a complex coding mechanism that could make introduction and adaptation to varied ecosystems (and varied physics of universes) more robust and more likely. also this evolved mechanism could have “hints” from the experience of past evolutions in previous universes . this could make evolution be a bit more determined and less random. if the mechanism already had an idea what it needed to do to adapt and survive.
the evolution processed itself could have evolved. maybe the most hardy and successful life generating mechanisms survived and became more abundant over time. so the process would improve just as the species of life did on earth. the better equipped survived and spread faster.
when talking about surviving singularity, we are talking about “times” which could be universes and universes long.
whatever the case we know that matter in the form of electrons and protons became atoms which became molecules which became elements which formed the organic compounds which came together to create life. all this happened within the space and time of our universe. life in itself is a part of the universe.
substances such as water, carbon dioxide, methane, and hydrogen cyanide formed key molecules such as sugars, amino acids, and nucleotides. Such molecules are the building blocks of proteins and nucleic acids, compounds ubiquitous to all living organisms http://cmex-www.arc.nasa.gov/VikingCD/Puzzle/Prebiot.htm
life had to happen only once. man and all life is variation and continuation of the single life generating event. an original spark that is still alive
because of the way DNA divides and life is regenerated, life was created once and there has been no death.
life is a continuance of that original spark that adapted to the conditions of the sun- earth ecosystem
once life happened the adaptation and evolution of life in the sun earth ecosystem began. evidence shows that the most fit creatures survived and multiplied.
because there is no evidence, the evolutionary changes of species is seen as random mutations and purely from chance. there is no evidence the coding mechanism that designs the next being is determined, has a goal or is influenced. with my hypothesis regarding surviving singularity, it is more than possible that DNA is not a “dumb” device and our evolution at least guided a bit.
what is the purpose of life, if any? our goal is to evolve and become the best species we can be to survive. but in the long run, we have no way of knowing what the “best species” is. obviously the one with the tools best equipped to survive. we dont know what it is we will need to survive a million years from now. life’s goal is not it’s purpose. our goal is not our purpose. the purpose of life is not known, though the goal of life may be. the primary goal of any individual or species is to survive and thrive. to continue is the goal of life. but for what purpose?
the best species or lifeform we know of is us. homo sapiens sapiens. mankind’s contribution to life is the expansion of consciousness. i do not believe man was the first to become conscious as i can see consciousness comes in degrees. there are levels of consciousness that i can see in other animals. man survived because of his brain and intelligence and not on his physical ability.
all life is dependant on other life. (what species could survive without any other species?) all life is related to all life. all life is dependant and related to the earth and sun. the whole sun-earth ecosystem is alive as if life. the earth is a living organism because it is a part of the environment needed by life.
man is the highest form of life. presently, life is striving to achieve its goal of ultimate survival and it chose man to do it as. mankind is life’s greatest achievement.
consciousness is the tool that gives man the greatest control over other life and maybe life itself. we are the most evolved. consciousness is the highest point of life. consciousness is our life as we know its greatest gift so far and it has been given to man.
presently, man is not capable of completely destroying life deliberately or directly. no matter what he could do some form of life, however simple, would survive. mankind could, however, inadvertently start a process that eventually kills all life, if one exists. like be the cause of some disease that wipes everything out. but it would be nature or life itself that actually “killed” everything, not man directly. (ie; if the sun went away) .
plant, animal, insect, bacteria, virus, mammal, bird, fish, reptile, dinosaur, primate
all parts of life are more than just intimately connected. i wonder if there is a species that could exist solely alone with no other life. this lifeform would have to “eat” inanimate material. it would have no other living creatures to consume for energy. what if life would have evolved not to eat other life? could the complex systems in the body, like the brain, have developed? if life eating other life is necessary for the high amounts of energy in meat, then killing is necessary too. killing for food is not murder. the first time a lifeform consumed another lifeform was a significant step in evolution.
observing nature and different plants and animals and etc., i can see a smooth transition from inanimate matter to bacteria or microscopic organisms to primitive slime to underwater almost animal type plants and worms to primitive fish to mammals to primate to man or whatever. some evolved forms of these things still exist today.
4.6 billion years ago earth’s atmosphere did not contain oxygen when the earth formed provided favorable conditions for the natural synthesis of the first organic compounds
1.3 billion years ago first eukaryote -a single cell organism
Protozoans are eukaryotic cells. It is a predator in common pond water; it is microscopic, and feeds on smaller protozoan cells. It is only about 1/1000th of a meter stick in length from:http://www.mindquest.net/biology/cell-biology/outlines/ec3guide-p2.html
680 million years ago the multicellular metazoa. All modern complex life developed from these. evolved from the eukaryote
680 million years ago complex colonies of cells began to show unique survival qualities in certain environmental niches. drive for sex instincts.
400 million years ago Sexual reproduction between two different organisms (male, female) having a common reproduction path but possessing differing DNA configurations, and differing role behaviors
4 million years ago human developed from an ancient primate
life is extremely diverse; an estimated 30 million different species.
