4. Formation process of life
1. Beginning of life
Life began around 13.500 million of years. We don’t know where it began, nor when or how did it. At least, we could find traces in rocks, because they have a high amount of carbon and other materials, which are considered remainders of living beings. Only microbes has been here from the beggining of the life on Earth, and during the first 1.000 millions of years they were the only ones in the planet. If we looked at the Earth from a powerful telescope, we didn’t see life. The microbes were of a kind which couldn’t resist oxygen, because they were anaerobic beings, and for them oxygen is like poison.
So, how they lived? There were not plants, only certain elements spontaneously produced in the atmosphere, maybe by the light of the Sun or by a lighting. These elements fell to an ocean where these microbes dwelt. In recent years, thermal vents have been discovered in the bottom of the sea, where volcanic crevices create high-temperature geysers. It is in that environment without Sun light or oxygen where life based on the reactions between particulate materials from the volcanic crevices and sea water.
These processes last for hundred of millions of years, until life started to change.
