Tree o' Life

There's a reason so many animals (like Mr. Squirrel below) look like us, or, we look like them - two eyes, nose, mouth, hands and feet, spine, internal organs, blood, etc etc. In fact, we have way, way, way more in common with any living animal than we have differences. The reason for this is clear above -- most every large animal alive today is a close cousin, and the only really strange creatures are cellular or some kind of weird mold. But even they are closely related --since, as I've stated before, every single lifeform alive today is a miracle, as we are all the lucky winners of billions to one odds of existing. Yet, here we are. Hooray!

Reminds me of The Next Generation episode #146: The Chase.
