e&s -Evolution and Senses-

About comments from last session yesterday the Tuesday 21th, I would like to refer to the cyanobacteria as an example of organisms that base their existence on the ability to cooperate effectively at oposition to development of the senses for survival, giving a clear example of the get right. The complexity of evolution as the exciting results in future to merge biology and technology (Cyborg) it doesn´t owe to the brain or the development of our senses in some other species. In fact just the opposite has happened.
As suggesting Gary F. Marcus, professor of psychology at the University of New York, just going through the experience of basic memory, decision making, language and happiness we can see the thousand and one flaws of evolution in all of the senses developed to survive.

The most dramatic and far-reaching innovations in the history of evolution, survival of the species, when everything pointed to a close, it was the intuition of some microorganisms newcomers two billion years after the formation of the Earth and the Solar system. It was a biomolecular feat, made it a pact between a bacterium and a host cell of the plant kingdom.

Chloroplast with which plants make food for themselves are actually housed in cyanobacterial cells of plants.

So I think it is grat, remembering that the greatest discovery we owe to these microbes called cyanobacteria with which plants make their own food is the partnership between a bacterium and the plant allowed photosynthesis; 'live from air', literally, instead of preying on the more complex or simple organisms.
An example of that is than in nature cooperation is a force more powerful than the competition and the development of the senses. Its success depends on knowing just cooperate.

To be sure, if there will be salvation in the future we have to understanding the possibilities of the molecular world.
