The Hypersea Platform
May 2, 2011 • 1:19PM

The evolution of life on land was an anti-entropic revolution for the biosphere as a whole. Oyang Teng presents this process as one of a series of ongoing case studies of the principle of physical-economic platforms, manifested within living nature. In particular, this slice of evolutionary history is examined from the standpoint of the Hypersea theory of American scientists Dianna and Mark McMenamin, an extension of Vladimir Vernadsky's earlier work in founding the science of biogeochemistry.
