Evolutionary Thoughts: Expanding Definitions

It’s time to out grow…

the narrowly defined, competitively driven understanding of evolution, favoring the triumph of our successful biological species, with a tendency to overshadow the significance of cosmic and planetary unfolding over the vast aeons of inorganic evolution.

Diarmuid O’Murchu, Evolutionary Faith, p.23
