Tick Delirium


Under Pressure. Thomas Gold’s model of The Deep Hot Biosphere reallocates
hydrocarbon deposits to an expanded anorganic chemistry—derived
from Supernovae debris, and accreted into planets from interstellar dustclouds—
out of which everything flows bottom-up. Descent into the earth
leads out of the solar system, in accordance with a xenoplutonic cosmic productivity,
transmitted through slow-release deep intra-terrestrial methane
reservoirs, pressure-stabilized against thermic dissociation. A vast mass of
Archaean microbes and submicrobial nanopopulations exploit this upwelling
anorganic hydrocarbon flow by scavenging loosely bound oxygen, reducing
ferric iron to magnetite….…
