    EXCERPT

    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….…
