Reposted from Tumbld Thoughts (December 5):
Above are two visual representations of evolution  taken from the video:
1) evolutionary transitions from the first plants (8:30) to cell colonies (8:56).
2) evolution of sea life from polyps with tentacles (9:26) to the first ancestral fishes (filter feeders with gill slits - 9:40).
 No posts from Synthetic Daisies in CoE this month. Just didn't have a chance to create a longer-ish, evolution-related post last month (I tend to use my microblog for shorter features, or for less polished profiles and features).
 a reboot of Cosmos is planned for the near future (hosted by Neil Degrasse Tyson and produced by Seth MacFarlane).
 progression of time in video is roughly proportional to elapsed evolutionary time.
