|IL DEVIENT DE PLUS EN PLUS EVIDENT QUE CE N’EST PAS L’INANITION, LES MICROBES, OU LE CANCER, MAIS PAR CONTRE L'HOMME LUI-MEME EST LE SUPPREME DANGER CONTRE L’HUMANITE. CARL JUNG|

Beginning as bacteria, life in the "cool" deep-sea vents around hydrothermal vents deep beneath the sea evolved some billion or so years after the earth first formed. Its spores evidently migrated to the "hot" smoker vents, also of hydrothermal origin. Although they shared the same physical organization, DNA, their genes were mostly different. This second branch of life is comprised of archaea. Then, through some process not yet entirely clear in detail, the bacteria and archaea combined their genes to form yet a third branch of life called eukaria. Evolution then took over with a vengeance, creating all the "visible" life forms was see today. By 530 million years ago most of the major phyla already existed. The so-called Cambrian explosion come suddenly, in geologic time. The eukaryotes, having learned how to incorporate calcium into their structures, began leaving skeletal remains for us to find and wonder over. It was simple life at first, worms, crustaceans and the like. But it was really well endowed; it was multi-cellular, able to sense and move out of danger or search for food. These critical features of life were apparent early on in most of the animal kingdom.
It is becoming more and more obvious, that it is not starvation, not microbes, not cancer, but man, himself, that is mankind's greatest danger. Carl Jung
