Convergence

"… before life can peep through, even as a flower, or a stick insect, or a beetle, it has to have some kind of unofficial assurance of nature’s stability … that nature is steadfast and continuous. … It is with the coming of man that a vast hole seems to open in nature, a vast black whirlpool, spinning faster and faster." Loren Eiseley, "The Firmament of Time"
