Shohtoro Thanks for the comment and a nice 'Supreme' web blog. I like the latest theme...unplug. I think i need to do that. Mike

F.P Many thanks for the comment. Here is an interesting thought ....developments in science happen via admissions of ignorance.You don't know about something (Why is the sky blue?, Why is grass green?) so you try to find the answer,probably by asking further questions (Is the sky always blue?), again admitting your ignorance. You comment that you are not good at physics - is an admission of ignorance, great.....so why? What questions did ask yourself? A correction...Gaia is a hypothesis and not a theory. To become a theory it has to be proven. Gaia, for example, could be a nice set of feedback loops. I personally don't think that is the case, however we still don't really know the reason why they seem to occur to protect life. Mike

I am not very good at physics and I don't know a lot of physics. But your theory opened my spectrum on physics and made ask myself questions. I even searched up your theory on google to see if I could learn more things about it. It is a nice theory that really opens doors to different views on certain controversial topics. Thank You, F-P

Shivani-dar I would like to believe you, but I would need you to explain what you mean by soul. It is a very emotive word. I then come across the phrase 'the Earth is trying to heal itself' and I am 100% behind you. Gaia is about the Earth trying to heal itself so life will continue. What we have not yet got is evidence that it is not just a set of simple feedback loops that is controlling this situation. Until then it is a hypothesis and not a theory. Mars might have life. There is evidence of water and within that there might be life. I have my doubts that they will find it. 4.5 billion years ago the Earth and Mars were formed. It is likely that both had similar surface structures. Cauldrons of chemical quagmires of hot elements with lots of water. On one planet, Earth, the magic chemistry occurred and a DNA like structure was formed. This forms the origin of life. Every living thing has within it a DNA formulation.This did not happen on Mars. if you take the atmosphere of Earth and let the chemistry take place (as it would in a sealed bottle) you end up with almost an exact copy of the atmosphere of Mars.On Mars the magic chemistry did not occur. I like your story, however there is, as far as I know no evidence of a nuclear war on Mars,it would have shown up in the analysis of the roamers that have landed there. I then rest my case. I am also an avid science fiction reader. Have you read 'Children of Time' by Adrian Tchaikovsky. You would enjoy it. Mike

I think that our earth is 'living' like it has its own soul. I believe the earth is trying to heal its self like when the bomb dropped in Hiroshima it was believed that for the next 75 years nothing would grow there, but surprisingly nature pushed through and started healing its self (http://www.pcf.city.hiroshima.jp/kids/KPSH_E/hiroshima_e/sadako_e/subcontents_e/12yomigaeru_1_e.html). Mars must have life, but ever since we have discovered it, it seems to me a dead planet not suitable for living, then why are we finding many things that resemble things on earth? Maybe there was life before we discovered it. A Russian boy tells us about how he was a martian and how mars had a nuclear war and the whole planet got destroyed, now they are living underground(I sound insane) but he also has a whole new viewpoint of solar system and how we could time travel if we could check the ear of sphinx (still sounding insane)..Maybe species on earth did not transform, maybe we all are aliens and come here to expand our territory. But all of these could just be superstitions (https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4867116/russian-boy-born-on-mars-boriska-kipriyanovich/)

hmsPikachu9000_32BoBPeepachuEverett Thank you for your comment. I have every sympathy for you. I met the Gaia hypothesis in the 1970's, was impressed and believed in it. There was then the thoughts that maybe it is just a series of arbitrary feedback loops. But then, what about the Mars situation. The planet was formed about the same time as the Earth. There were probably similar chemical cauldrons. On Earth the chemistry came together and 'life' in the form of some DNA was created. On Mars this maybe did not happen so there are therefore no DNA and no feedback loops. I was impressed by the research on plants communicating with each other BUT is that evidence of Gaia. From a science perspective we still need proof. I will therefore, up to the proof point, always refer to it as an hypothesis. Long answer. Thanks for the comment. Mike

Hello, I would like to leave my opinion on the Gaia. But I am sort of split between that Gaia is not real and that Gaia is real because some of the evidence was super convincing. From, hmsPikachu9000_32BoBPeepachuEverett

Bella Many thanks for your nice comment. remember Gaia is a hypothesis ( it's an idea and not fully proven). If it was fully proven we would call it a theory. If you or your friends have any 'science' questions you could go to sciencemaster.co.uk Mike
