Many traits of apes, including humans, are evident in monkeys. , which is when species have genders of different shapes and sizes, is a . But it is , especially apes, and is why men are larger and stronger than women. Its : how females choose their mates. A prominent hypothesis is that early monkey troupes had males as sentinels guarding the territorial perimeter and protecting the female-dominated core where offspring were cared for and where food was. A defensible food source was the key attribute of any simian territory. Most primates are , and extreme territorial behaviors can be seen in monkeys and apes, including murder, with its apotheosis in humans.

Here is a brief summary of this essay. Ever since more than three billion years ago and about a billion years after the Sun and Earth formed, organisms have continually invented more effective methods to acquire, preserve, and use energy. after three billion years of evolution and, pound-for-pound, it used energy . The story of life on Earth has been one of , and in turn influencing them. During the eon of complex life that began more than 500 million years ago, there have been many brief for some fortunate species, soon followed by increased energy competition, a relatively stable struggle for energy, and then cleared biomes and set the stage for another golden age by organisms adapted to the new environments. Those newly dominant organisms were often marginal or unremarkable members of their ecosystems before the mass extinction. That pattern has characterized the journey of complex life over the past several hundred million years. among some animals, which provided them with a competitive advantage.

WEAVER: It was just kind of a lifelong obsession.

Complex life means, by definition, that it has many parts and they move. Complex life needs energy to run its many moving parts. Complexity’s dependence on greater levels of energy use not only applies to all organisms and ecosystems, but it has also applied to all human civilizations, as will be explored later in this essay. When cells became “complex” with organelles, a tiny observer inside that cell would have witnessed a bewildering display of activity, as mitochondria sailed through the cells via “scaffolding” on their energy generating missions, the ingestion of molecules for fuel and to create structures, the miracle of cellular division, the constant building, repair, and dismantling of cellular structures, and the ejection of waste through the cellular membrane. The movement of molecules and organelles in eukaryotic cells is accomplished by using the same protein that became muscle: actin. Prokaryotes used an , and their provide their main mode of travel, to usually move toward food and safety or away from danger, including predators.

Earth’s iron core gives rise to its pronounced magnetic field, which helps protect Earth’s surface from the solar wind. Planets with weak magnetic fields, such as Mars, are believed to be vulnerable to the solar wind stripping away their atmospheres. If Earth did not have a magnetic field, its , which may have led to the extinction of complex life on Earth, if it would have ever appeared at all.

But what led to English success in North America, more than anything else, was the energy-rich continent that they stumbled into. Intact forests and soils were long gone in Europe, and seemingly virgin lands were there for the taking, as long as the natives were removed. Soon after the USA achieved its independence from Great Britain, during a meeting of English and American diplomats, a British diplomat noted that despite their many similarities, among them their common heritage, the Americans at that meeting were all about a foot taller than their British counterparts. Colonial New Englanders lived several years longer than their British counterparts. The rich soils of North America grew larger people than Europe’s depleted soils, and Americans always had one of humanity’s longest life expectancies. That was largely why they could .

For various reasons that are far from settled among scientists, eukaryotes did not immediately rise to dominance on Earth but were on a fairly even footing with prokaryotes for more than a billion years. That situation was at least partially related to continental configurations and oceanic currents.
