Diverse New Life Found In Pacific; Set To Take Over If Humans Blow It - Articles Surfing
Recently, scientists discovered 52 new species in the Pacific off Indonesia.
Elated, Mark Erdmann, a U. S. scientist who led surveys there this year, stated, 'We feel very confident that this is the epicenter of marine biodiversity' on the planet.
They immediately urged that the precious area receive protection from commercial fishing.
What they did not reveal is that the clever fish are diversifying just to make sure there's plenty of life, at least in the Pacific, to keep the earth humming as the center of it in the solar system, just in case humans blow it on land.
The fish are part of a subtle plan by nature to make sure that, while humans have a place in the overall life of the planet, they cannot ultimately control or conclude it, no matter how stupidly they behave.
As one of the scientists, in an off-handed comment, admitted, 'It's great to know so many different kinds of life are swimming around and crawling in that part of the ocean. It makes you feel confident that, even if humans wipe out most or all of the life on land, one day, millions of years from now, an amphibian will come along that will crawl back up onto the land, and a few million years later a new group of creatures who think they're the smartest on earth will have a chance to prove it ' or lose it.'
