Our planet is a
relatively young, approximately 20 million year
old planet, when being compared to others. Yet, life
thrives here. We find life in the depths of the sea, to the tips of
our mountain tops. However, no one knows for sure how it actually
began. Biologist try to sum up how life began by first taking into
consideration the range of characteristics that all living things
share. These characteristics include the ability to use energy, the
ability to take in raw materials and the ability to get rid of
waste. Life on Fe-o-tus is believed to have started in the oceans.
In the ocean, the first forms of life were extremely simple and
probably appeared through a series of random chemical reactions.
EARLY LIFE FORMS
These hair like
arms are clusters of single celled organisms called Nanyms. They
make their food by using sunlight and are the oldest living things
found on Fe-o-tus. These cells were originally
developed underwater. They were found by ocean scientist
fossilized. They are the origin of all the living
plants and animals on this planet.
As the cells
adapted from the basis of all life form on Fe-o-tus, the Nanyms.
They became tolerant of the harsh natural environment. The
first to mutate from Nanyms were the Bisonyms. These were the first
life forms to be able to protect themselves with membranes and walls
that enabled them to develop without dispersing. The next adaptation
was the fungnyms. These advanced cells were able to absorb less
developed cells, thus increasing their strength. Furthermore, the
protonyms were able to separate when becoming too large and still
reproduce by binary fission. this is were they split in two. During
this process one individual becomes two new individuals. Organisms that
reproduce in this fashion, are so basic, that it can continue
indefinitely. When organisms are more complicated, the process
becomes more specific. The fission process occurred during the
hottest month on Fe-o-tus. If temperatures do not reach the high
80's, it is impossible for fission to occur. Thus, much of the
reproducing takes place on top of the seas.
Fe-o-tus have discovered something unusual, when the lava from the
volcanoes has an extremely large flow going into the ocean it
occurs. When the gases mix with the ocean water, these precise
chemicals allow for a rapid growth in organisms.
As the chemicals
combine, organisms seem to naturally migrate to this area, thus
making it more populated. On the other hand, when this does not
occur for a long time, the opposite an be said. Organisms seem to
dwindle and become more scarce.
