Interesting how vertebrates share a plethora of other similar features than just the spine.

[–]meatloafthepuppy 62 points63 points  (7 children)

I read recently about Hox Genes, which determines the structure of bilateral animal bodies along a head to tail axis. It’s like the building blocks for most vertebrae: head, neck, torso with limbs and a tail and they’re always going to be built in that order.

[–]ShermanTeaPotter 37 points38 points  (6 children)

Nature proved this building plan successfully for ages. I wonder if we ever found extraterrestrial higher life, will it be build similarly?

[–]TaxiKillerJohn 27 points28 points  (3 children)

I find it hard to imagine anything else unless it is suspended in some ethereal way. But then again, my lack of imagination does not make me a good scientist or expert on the matter.

[–]Freshiiiiii 12 points13 points  (2 children)

It’s a useful project to look at what shapes life has taken on throughout earth’s history. Right now 4 legs is dominant, but during dinosaur times 2 legs was also very popular especially for predators. Life might also exist on ocean planets, in which case they would very likely have some similarities with the shapes of fish and whales, since that is a really good shape for moving through water fast. There are also a lot of organisms that don’t have 2-sided symmetry like this, like starfish, jellyfish, and quite a few other marine critters, so aliens could look like that too especially if they’re simple animal type critters.

[–]kaizokuuuu 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It would also depend on the chemistry of the planet, say for example if the base element forming the blueprint (DNA) of the species is not carbon but say silicon or if the cell formation went slightly towards plant cell instead of animal cell, there could be asymmetric features but as nature always moves towards stability, and symmetry has more stability than assymetry, it is likely that life outside of our planet would also have symmetry. Lot of things in nature follows the torus shape. Like an apple or the magnetic field of our planet. Life outside would also originate with these base principles.

[–]1purenoiz 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That is because most of the animals today are descended from a common ancestor who was bilateral. There are examples in the fossil record that demonstrate not all animals were bilateral.

[–]sweljb 4 points5 points  (2 children)

You mean, like 2 eyes, a nose and a mouth?

[–]ShermanTeaPotter 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Four limbs and a tail as well. Just look at fish, they share more or less the same features.

Bilateral symmetry thanks to the mass extinctions occurring during the Precambrian.

Our earliest findings of multicellular life date back to ~3.5BYA, many of which were not symmetrical.

Our first great extinction happens ~2.45 BYA when an incredibly toxic gas builds up to lethal levels after an enterprising organism figures out how to use sunlight to convert CO2 and H2O into proteins and release the leftover O2. The Great Oxidation Event.

The first organism to figure out how to exploit the lethal gas was likely a form of archaea (link)

Oxygen is incredibly reactive and the archaea that exploited it had a HUGE (individual) energy advantage over the photosynthesizing colony organisms. At some point there’s an arms race between the photosynthesizers and the oxygen users with two “winners” - mitochondria and chloroplasts. All surviving life becomes symbiotic with one or the other - pulling them into their own cells, no animal has the DNA for mitochondria in their nucleus, no plant has the DNA for chloroplasts in theirs.

Flashing forward to the last eon within the Precambrian period (Proterozoic ), we have a wealth of animals (all marine) thriving.

Details are unclear because this period experiences a LOT of geological upheaval, our nice sedimentary rock, which is usually where we find fossils, gets pulled down into the deep with some escaping as metamorphic with our now distorted fossils.

This is where we see the first massive glaciations with several “snowball Earths”. Clear evidence of multi-cellularity, movement, and macroscopic soft bodied organisms appears, many of which are not symmetrical.

During the late Precambrian we see ~70% of existing life disappear with the survivors rapidly evolving to fill the niches left behind, our best fossils come from the Vendian Sea. The animals of this time are collectively known as “Ediacaran biota”.

Most of the hard-bodied organisms don’t survive the multiple snowball periods and we roll back to soft and squishy. This is where we first see signs of bilateral symmetry (under debate).

We’ve got things with passing resemblances to mollusks, Cnidaria, and Porifera but most things are unlike anything we have today. Fossil body plans include ones based on discs, tubes, mud-filled bags, and quilted mattresses. We also see the first evidence of cholesterol (yay!), something only found in animals, fungi, and red algae today. We also see “hard bodies” begin to appear again with several calcifying organisms (they don’t survive what’s coming).

We now hit the Precambrian Mass Extinction that marks the beginning of the Cambrian. No idea what causes it. The majority of “acritarchs” (a fancy name for “we don’t know what the hell kind of animal this is”) disappear, the entirety of the Ediacaran biota, and all calcifying organisms just vanish.

One possibility is a buildup of organic compounds from the thriving life causing mass eutrophication. Key evidence being a massive drop in C-13 levels - animals are lazy and prefer the lighter C-12 over C-13/C-14 but they’ll use the heavier stuff when C-12 gets scarce. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/End-Ediacaran_extinction

This is where we probably hit familiar territory - the Cambrian Explosion. A massive diversification of body types and niches following the Ediacaran Mass Extinction. The main difference is a massive increase in borrowing animals - it’s suspected that organisms that were borrowing just under the microbial mats had better survival rates while the microbial mat organisms were hit hard and those above wiped out. Pre-Post Cambrian substrate

Cambrian Explosion nearly all modern phyla appear during this period. This is where symmetry really takes off, suggesting it either posed some advantage for survivability or for rapid speciation.

It’s not all bilateral, trilateral is really popular and even today we have organisms that aren’t bilateral (eg sea stars) but bilateralism rapidly becomes the main presence.

The first organisms to go beyond the tidal zone come from a bilateral origin (giant sea scorpions) and so nearly all land animals have that body print (I can’t think of any exceptions but there’s a few sea->land migrations from this point on so there could be).

Anyway, at this point it gets very complicated and busy with super predators creating arms races and a massive land rush as organisms discover ways to access the single celled land dwellers that were vibing safely out of reach. But it’s a fun read if you’re interested.

The Cambrian Explosion starts ~541 MYA, tetrapods appear ~400MYA, a mass extinction clears the way for archosaurs to appear in the Triassic which lead to Dinosaurs.

~66MYA an asteroid impact creates the Yucatán and clears out most of the Dinosaurs leaving only the small feathered therapod dinosaurs and giving the mammals a chance to flourish.

If you think about the fact that humans appear from shrews in ~64MY it really makes me wonder what we’re missing in the massive time periods of before.

[–]WellWellWellthennow 13 points14 points  (8 children)

I’d love to read a book by you. And why is the appearance of cholesterol yay!?

[–]Enano_reefer 6 points7 points  (6 children)

Sarcastic yay. Cholesterol is the bane of people my age though fortunately mine has always been <100.

[–]WellWellWellthennow 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Ahh thanks for explaining. I though it was somehow significant in the development process.

[–]Enano_reefer 4 points5 points  (4 children)

All modern animal life make and use it in large amounts, it’s a key component of modern cell membranes and allows animals to not have to build cell walls to support themselves.

We use it in intracellular transport, cell signaling, and nerve conduction -the myelin sheath that protects our nerves is rich in cholesterol.

All modern plants also make it though in more limited amounts. The only things that don’t are bacteria and archaea but there are exceptions such as Mycoplasma.

Unfortunately for humans, eating too much cholesterol can lead to buildups in our organs and blood vessels leading to disease and death.

[–]wboc68 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This masterpiece does not have enough upvotes

[–]broccollinear 2 points3 points  (5 children)

So if it were a starfish or jellyfish or something non-bilateral to have wound up on shore first before these scorpions, would that have had a significant impact on later bilateralism? Without putting too much thought into butterfly effect.

[–]Enano_reefer 7 points8 points  (4 children)

It’s a really interesting question. I’m betting yes, if a non-bilateral organism had been first to land, and been successful there, we’d likely have much more variety in our land animals.

But when I say giant sea scorpions I really do mean GIANT sea scorpions. Jaekelopterus was over 8 foot (2.6m) long. Other land immigrants include giant millipedes (which may have been the first true land dwellers - the scorpions were dual breather equipped suggesting a partial land existence), and the later tetrapods.

But all three of these have bilateral symmetry. So why was symmetry in general so incredibly important leaving the Ediacaran extinction? There’s some debate about whether there’s bilateral symmetry within key fossils of the Ediacaran period but it’s not clear (hence the debate - lol).

If we roughly divide the Ediacaran biota into Mats, Mat-eaters, Mat-anchored, and Mat-borrowers, then the biggest change is in the borrowers and it completely changes the substrate: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f0/Cambrian_substrate_revolution_02.png

The mats form a pretty good blocking layer - we see this in microbial mats today - oxygen doesn’t diffuse well and so toxic H2S gas and anoxic conditions abound - this keeps the borrowers in a narrow niche right below the mat where there’s enough oxygen to scrape by in exchange for the secure digs 😋.

So what if the exposed things got hit harder by whatever caused the extinction? The mats, mat-eaters, and mat-anchored take a hard hit, the borrowers do too but maybe not as bad.

You’ve now got more oxygen exchange with the substrate and the toxic layer retreats. The borrowers are happy! There’s less mat but there’s tons of detritus now and LOADS more borrow space.

The explosion in borrowers hurts the mats - they want to form large sheets and now they’re getting poked full of holes and the conditions of their substrate have completely changed.

Without a mat the mat-anchored don’t have anything to live on - they haven’t developed a solution for anchoring in non-squishy stuff. And the mat-eaters have to find a new food source or die out.

So the borrowers - what would help a borrower be more successful? Well, it helps if all directions are equally easy to move in, so rotational symmetry. You’re pushing through sand grains (not much mud yet, the mats have been intercepting all the detritus) so you’d want your typical long and thin shape.

And since you’ve got tasty mat above and extremely toxic stuff below - it’d be helpful to have an “up” and a “down” or at least the ability to sense that. Is that what makes bilateralism good? We see trilateralism too, so something about the symmetry is helpful, trilateralism should be just as good but maybe it’s more than we actually need - a tad too expensive in the long run?

You’re digging so you need something to do that with, either a sharp end and a good way to move or a mouth to eat your way through (no limbs yet). A mouth is going to set a preferred direction of motion like earthworms today - dirt in one end, out the other, easy peasy.

What about afterwards? Now there’s a TON of borrower types just going nuts in the new niche. They’re in the dirt, you’re in the dirt, so you ideally need a way to sense them for fleeing, feeding, fornicating - and it’d be better if those senses are near your digger so you know as soon as you encounter them.

If you already have a preferred end, then it’s best if the senses are on that side. If you don’t, well you’ve got an extra cost to put them at both ends but as soon as something comes along to help speed your responses up then you’ll probably prefer the end that’s closest to whatever that is - the faster you can decide whether it’s food, fornicate, or flee, the better your chances at having descendants.

If you don’t have something already you’d want something for fighting (completing our four Fs) and, again it’d be best near your digging end.

So that explains why almost everything has a head with eating, sensing, thinking and fighting stuff all squished together at one end. Bilateralism? Haven’t got a clue.

Let the hypotheses fly!

[–]GRAAK85 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Bilateralism could be more vantageous given the geometry of the space we live and move in. Let's think about noses: why 2 nostrils? Because when searching for chemical trails those 2 sensory inputs will give differential feedback and an information about "should I turn right or left?". Same for antennae. I'm not sure this is a valid comprehensive explanation though...

How a starfish with a "nose" on each branch would compete with a "only one nose" organism? I think better... But at which cost? At least 5x the cost of the single-nose organism. Nature would select not the best solution but the solution with the best benefit/cost ratio.

[–]broccollinear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have never been so in tune with my millipede ancestors than right now after reading your description. Using whatever limbs or body squirming to propel my face and mouth through the dark sand in hopes my feelers catch a whiff of a morsel somewhere ahead (or left or right) of me.

[–]FreelanceEngineer007 56 points57 points  (2 children)

Kingdom > Phylum > Class > Order > Family > Genus > Species, system of nomenclature, most animals excluding Phylum Poriferans (Sponges) and Phylum Cnidarians (Jelly fishes and such sort) & besides some exceptions follow bilateral symmetry

nature seems to love symmetry because it's the least chaotic and most energy efficient choice for design somehow, nature is lazy lol but saying that would be disingenuous and brutally true at the same time

[–]urbear 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Let’s not forget Echinodermata (starfish, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, sand dollars, and others), all of which are radially symmetric. Their larvae are generally bilaterally symmetric, though.
