Background

A description of the experience

Pere Teilhard de Chardin – Phenomenon of Man

Now the more complex organisms become, the more evident becomes their inherent kinship.  It manifests itself in the absolute and universal uniformity of the basic cellular pattern and it manifests itself, particularly in animals, in the identical solutions found for various problems of perception, nutrition and reproduction ….. everywhere we find vascular and nervous systems, everywhere some form of blood, everywhere gonads and everywhere eyes.  It continues in the similarity of the methods employed by units for collecting together in higher organisms and becoming 'socialised', and finally it shines clearly in the general laws of development (ontogenesis and phylogenesis) which give to the living world, considered as a whole, the coherence of a single upthrust.
