Duda Jarek Posted June 15, 2007 Share Posted June 15, 2007 If we look at our ecosystem - it's one huge domestic war - organisms uses most of energy on competition, fight... It's mainly energy from the cleanest, never ending source - the sun. In the times of threat of energy crisis, overpopulation, one of our hope could be increasing the effectiveness of this changing solar energy into needed sugars, proteins. The other thing is that we are geting closer to the concept of creating completely new ecosystems, like on Mars, where this effectiveness of development of ecosystem is essential for the whole project. I would like to initiate a discussion about the possibility of such increase of effectiveness: is it possible and how much we could increase it? One way I see to do it, is by selection of organisms - to create a very precise ecosystem, in which organisms almost haven't opposite interests. We could replace some organisms with handicapped ones by eg removing sequences coding some proteins too(evolution couldn't repair it quickly) . The tool we could use to remove some organisms, could be chiral life, I've presented in different thread. Let say, we have this Noe's ark to select, modify ... Let's think if it would be possible to such a stable, more effective ecosystem? How to make it make it, so the proportion of organisms would be automatically keep on the appropriate levels? So that evolution, climate differences wouldn't spoil everything...? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
