Major Material Complexity Level 5: A Organism System: Hypersea Systems

Context: Level 4: Gaia

Macrosystem: Hypersea (only known example)

"Hypersea as physical entity is the connectness of life on land: from fungal-entangled roots to treetops, flitting moths, springing locusts, and soaring hawks. In the Vernadskian view, living matter has extended the marine over the land, bringing phosphorus, water, and horizontal throbbing to the barren dryness of the continents." -- Lynn Margulis (Foreword to Hypersea)
