The Ancestor Of All Life On Earth...

May Have Been A Gigantic Planetary Super-Organism http://www.altering-perspectives.com/20 ... h-may.html

Homage to the Buddha
Thus indeed, is that Blessed One: He is the Holy One, fully enlightened, endowed with clear vision and virtuous conduct, sublime, the Knower of the worlds, the incomparable leader of men to be tamed, the teacher of gods and men, enlightened and blessed.

Homage to the Teachings
The Dhamma of the Blessed One is perfectly expounded; to be seen here and now; not delayed in
time; inviting one to come and see; onward leading (to Nibbana); to be known by the wise, each for himself.

That's a seriously :alien: site, Kusala (look at http://www.altering-perspectives.com/2013/06/super-human-abilities-confirmed-by-nasa.html, for instance) but the particular item you link to may be okay as far as it goes ... which isn't as far as it tries to look like it goes. How about links to the original research?

The science does not warrant the :alien: -claim "planet-spanning organism" in any way.
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.
- Sedaka Sutta [SN 47.19]

That's better!
But, having skimmed through it, I agree with what I think Dave is saying: the science does not identify a "Gigantic Planetary Super-Organism" at all, but a very simple microscopic blob. It may well have been surrounded by lots of similar blobs but they certainly did not constitute one organism, super- or not, in any meaningful way.
Sigh. It was a sorta nice idea ... my great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great - etc - grand-dad could have been something that would have made the giant squid http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120814150336/marveldatabase/images/7/72/Giant_Squid.png look like a dumb tadpole.
