GAIA IS A TOUGH BITCH

The Third Culture - Chapter 7

I had never heard of Lynn Margulis (1938-2011). Now she is my new hero.

She is most famous for her theory of endosymbiosis, which says that eukaryotic cells—the complicated cells of protozoa, animals, plants, and fungi—were formed in a series of stages where one organism swallowed another but, instead of digesting it, took it on as a symbiotic partner!

The idea reminds me very much of the themes I love in Japanese anime, Miyazaki, Ghost in the Shell, Macross, Gundam, Evangelion, etc.
