My hubby and I found this great TED Talk over the weekend. (dontcha just love TED?)
It’s by David Gallo: Life in the Deep Oceans (1998)
They show creatures from the deep that are just inspiring.
From a curious octipod, to bio-luminescent creatures that are not powered by the sun , to the vents on the floor with a stack community that has animals growing as much as 1/4″ a week. The growth can be toppled by one of the many earthquakes, but can be re-created above a site emitting sulphuric acid from the core of our Earth in about a year.
They have even found the simplest form of life in a bacteria.
The Ocean has bio-diversity & bio-density higher than the rainforests and is largely unknown to us.
David made a powerful statement that resonated with us: “Everything on this planet works in cycles and rhythms…..We need to work with it.”
May you know the SPiCE in life!
