Watch this awesome video to the end, History of the entire world!
The short story of everything – and I mean everything big enough – seems to be like this: long equilibriums connected with quick leaps.
From all the major leaps mentioned here (that are allegedly self-organized) I can believe in the authonomy of the most farfetched ones, the least imaginable transitions:
– I can buy that cells decided to benefit from the economy of scale and thus shaped organs and animals so quickly to the extreme extent of the Cambrian explosion (2′:51″).
– Similarly I can believe that the technological singularity (19′:17″) that we are experiencing live, is taking place on its own. You may call it the artificial super-intelligence, the transcendental object or as in this video “the thing inventor inventor”. It is currently unfolding before our eyes and it doesn’t seem to be guided remotely. By a typical interventionist conscious God, through any dashboard or something equivalent.
– It is also believable that the sudden increase in the brain size of the human ape and the advent of the double-articulated language (and thus the human mind – 4′:11″) happened without an alien intrusion.

But there is one mysterious transition. A leap too giant to concieve to have emerged on its own and on the surface of this planet:
– The geological to biological transformation of the earth (2′:17″). How come as the planet cooled down (and became in a sense fertile) cells appeared so quickly? Every good story that I have heard skips over this leap, ignores the magnitude of such transition and fast forwards. Science knows nothing about this. We ear behind a wild guess even.
So such questions have grown again in my head and before I shave them off with Occam’s razor:
How did cells – such extremely complicated machines – appear on Earth? How were they cooked on a geological boring planet? Where did the instruction sheet of all living organisms appeared through rocks? All that advanced DNA computation and dataflows, the advent of life, where did they come from?
