Most of us have at least a vague idea of how our Earth first formed from the dust and debris orbiting the nascent middling star we call ‘Sol’ some 4.567 BILLION years ago. SO many fortuitous events have occurred since then to form the planet we know and for beings like ourselves to evolve upon it and even to begin to wonder at it all!
How critical the Moon to everything we know?
How critical a molten, convecting Nickel-Iron core and magnetic field?
How critical the quick evolution of Cyanobacteria to produce vast quantities of oxygen (and incidentally the ‘Ozone layer’)?
And on and on!
It’s almost as if the Universe ‘WANTS’ to be alive! (like Pinocchio?)
I often muse upon and marvel at such things!
