Background

A description of the experience

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin – Phenomenon of Man

By what right ...can we say a mammal or even man is more advanced, more perfect than a bee or a rose?...

To some extent we can arrange beings in increasingly wide circles according to the distance in time which separates them from the initial cell .. One spoke of the wheel [appears to be] as good as any other .. [but] evolution has a precise orientation and a privileged axis.
