Life survives in the chaos of the cosmos by picking order out of the winds. Death is certain, but life
becomes possible by following patterns that lead like paths of firmer ground through the swamps of
time. Cycles of light and dark, of heat and cold, of magnetism, radioactivity, and gravity all provide
vital guides, and life learns to respond to even their most subtle signs. The emergence of a fruit fly is
tuned by a spark lasting one thousandth of a second; the breeding of a bristle worm is co-ordinated on
the ocean floor by a glimmer of light reflected from the moon; the development of the eggs of a quail
is synchronised by a soft conversation between the embryos; conception in a woman waits for that
phase of the moon under which she was born. Nothing happens in isolation. We breathe and bleed, we
laugh and cry, we crash and die in time with cosmic cues.
Inorganic matter got together in the right way to create a self-perpetuating organism that started a
system of elaboration that has now produced a pattern with several million pieces. This is
Supernature, and man sits at the center of its web, tugging at the strands that interest him, following
some through to useful conclusions and snapping others in his impatience. Man is the spearhead of
evolution, vital, creative, and immensely talented, but still young enough to wreak havoc in his first
flush of enthusiasm. Hopefully this period of awkward adolescence is coming to an end as he begins
to realise that he cannot possibly survive alone, that the web of Supernature is supported by the
combined strength of a vast number of individually fragile fragments, that life on earth is united into
what amounts to a single superorganism, and that this in turn is only part of the cosmic community.
A first sight, the process of evolution looks extremely wasteful with most developments running into
the dead ends of extinction, but even in their failure these contribute something to the few species that
do succeed. It is imperative that there should be a multitude of participants so that life can move on a
broad front, testing all possibilities in a search for the right ones. Even those that die have not lived in
vain, because news of their failure is broadcast and becomes part of the inheritance of Supernature.
This communion is possible because life shares a mutual sensitivity to the cosmos, has a common
origin, and speaks the same organic language.
The alphabet is written in chemical symbols shared by all protoplasm. The most common word is
water, which has the property of instability that makes it a most sensitive, reliable receiver of subtle
signals. Simple formulas in an aqueous solution make it possible for information to pass from cell to
cell as long as there is direct contact between them. The same information can jump across space
provided with an overlap of electrical fields or where two communicants are sufficiently alike to
resonate in sympathy with each other.

this is word salad Hir
