Sponges. Microbes not only discovered the metabolic pathways that we eukaryotes later adopted (respiration, photosynthesis and fermentation) as well as at least one we did not (chemosynthesis), they also evolved a rainbow of biochemical variations on each that we do not begin to match. Microbes dominated the Proterozoic and arguably they still largely determine the course of life today. They are, as the microbiologist John Ingraham puts it, ‘our inventors, progenitors and T H E B O O K O F B A R E LY I M A G I N E D B E I N G S keepers’.
He could not say precisely how far – famously noting only that ‘we find no vestige of a beginning, no prospect of an end’ – but he knew it was massively more than the few thousand years that most Europeans had previously thought. The discovery of ‘deep time’, as we now call it, made possible Darwin’s momentous idea, published sixty-six years after Hutton’s Theory, that, given enough time, endless forms of life could evolve from a few or one. But the geological record also contained what seemed like an intractable puzzle, which became known as Darwin’s dilemma: the earliest animal fossils (dating from the period we now call the Cambrian) were already abundant, diverse and anatomically complex.
