The thoughts that we perceive all round us are only the mind in form or substance. Infants were killed to save them from the Spaniards. This was perfectly true only I had totally forgotten it till then. The convergence of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers produced rich fertile soil and a supply of water for irrigation.

As will become a familiar theme in this essay, the rise and fall of species and ecosystems is always primarily an energy issue.� The Ediacaran extinction is a good example: Ediacaran fauna either became an energy source for early Cambrian predators, ran out of food energy, ran out of the oxygen necessary to power their metabolisms, or lacked some other energy-delivered nutrient.� After the extinction events, biomes were often cleared for new species to dominate, which were often descended from species that were marginal ecosystem members before the extinction event.� They then enjoyed a golden age of relative energy abundance as their competitors were removed via the extinction event.� For this essay�s purposes, the most important ecological understanding is that the Sun provides all of earthly life�s energy, either directly or indirectly (all except nuclear-powered electric lights driving photosynthesis in greenhouses, as that energy came from dead stars).� Today�s hydrocarbon energy that powers our industrial world comes from captured sunlight.� Exciting electrons with photon energy, then stripping off electrons and protons and using their electric potential to power biochemical reactions, is what makes Earth�s ecosystems possible.� Too little energy, and reactions will not happen (such as ice ages, enzyme poisoning, the darkness of night, food shortages, and lack of key nutrients that support biological reactions), and too much (such as ultraviolet light, ionizing radiation, temperatures too high for enzyme activity), and life is damaged or destroyed.� The journey of life on Earth has primarily been about adapting to varying energy conditions and finding levels where life can survive.� For the many hypotheses about those ancient events and what really happened, the answers are always primarily in energy terms, such as how it was obtained, how it was preserved, and how it was used.� For life scientists, that is always the framework, and they devote themselves to discovering how the energy game was played Art: For Whom and For What?.
