    of where we are right now and how remarkable that we are here at all.  The message is powerful, but it is written gently enough for those predisposed to think that things as they are now is how they have been and will be in the future just might be terribly, terribly wrong.  

    I think you most powerfully accomplish this by picking up the pace as we reach the present to provide some sense of ourselves as arising in a blink of the world's eye against a gorgeous and non-determinant evolutionary backdrop, and by placing our voracious planet-spanning species in the context of natural processes that have preceded us - some fast, some slow.

    Thanks - great job.
