There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.
Charles Darwin (1809-1882)

Joseph Roux (1834-1905)
We are a living part of Earth’s life, owned and operated by the Earth, probably specialized for functions on its behalf that we have not yet glimpsed.
