Background

A description of the experience

Pere Teilhard de Chardin – Phenomenon of Man

all living creatures, from the humblest bacteria to man, contain exactly the same complicated types of vitamins and enzymes, notwithstanding the great range of chemical forms possible; just as the higher mammals are all 'fritubercular' and walking vertebrates all four footed.  Surely such similarity of living substance in dispositions which do not seem necessary suggests an early choice or sorting.... whatever may have been the complexity of its original impetus, it exhausts only a part of what might have been.
