AFRICAN HOMAGE

Luca – Sculpture by Addé 2019

Luca is an acronym for Last Universal Common Ancestor which is dated around 3 billion years.

Life as we know it, at least what is still present today, seems to have started recently, around 570 million years.

The origins of life are still being debated, one of the theories being the primitive soup (no croutons) another one being panspermia which says life would come from elsewhere.

Life itself is phenomenal. Any live form, no matter how simple or complex, has a starting point, a germination, from which it will grow, develop, raise, transform, blithely reproduce, then die.

This astonishing faculty of growing from one state to another is fascinating and, at least, deserves respect.

There are two causes for mass extinction, natural factor, or humankind.

Seemingly, more energy and money is spent on studying a hypothetical natural factor, than in preserving, protecting, all in all, respecting life and nature.

Growth of any form of life might be regarded as banal, it is, in fact fascinating.

Luca est l’acronyme de Last Universal Common Ancestor qui date d’environ 3 milliards d’années.

La vie telle que nous la connaissons, du moins ce qui en est encore présent aujourd’hui, semble avoir commencé récemment, vers 570 millions d’années.

Les origines de la vie sont encore débattues, l’une des théories étant la soupe primitive (sans croûtons) et l’autre la panspermie qui dit que la vie viendrait d’ailleurs.

La vie elle-même est phénoménale. Toute forme vivante, aussi simple ou complexe soit-elle, a un point de départ, une germination, d’où elle va grandir, se développer, s’élever, se transformer, se reproduire joyeusement, puis mourir.

Cette faculté étonnante de passer d’un état à l’autre est fascinante et, au moins, mérite le respect.

Il y a deux causes à l’extinction massive, le facteur naturel ou l’humanité.

Apparemment, on dépense plus d’énergie et d’argent à étudier un facteur naturel hypothétique qu’à préserver, protéger, dans l’ensemble, la vie et la nature.

La croissance de toute forme de vie peut être perçue comme banale, est, en fait, fascinante.

    It is ironic and sad that more money and energy are wasted on destruction than on preserving life.

    Wonderful reflections on a topical subject!

    Blue.. It must be cold out there
    Being mere dust
    In this vast expanse we call the Universe

    Then stars..
    In such a fashion that we could come into existence
    Relaying our time span from one generation to another

    Aye! The nature of survival always amazes me
    From the very beginning back then
    Up till who knows when

    Something one too many times, I have to admit, I take it for granted

      Good words! You have grasped the essence of the piece, then worked out how granted things are but should not. Thank you Kamus!
