Lyall Watson is a biologist who writes with captivating skill, bearing the reader along in his tidal flow of ideas, imagery, Lyall Watson is a biologist who writes with captivating skill, bearing the reader along in his tidal flow of ideas, imagery, and observations into contact with the deeper forces he believes underlie life.

He takes off with the Hoyle hypothesis see above that life was seeded on Earth from space, taking root in clays to become membrane-enclosed cells and later aggregations which took off, so to speak, to lead to us. The life-tide is a metaphor to describe the tension that Watson believes characterizes the human condition and other creatures with self-awareness and consciousness. It represents the pull between genetic destiny and what Watson calls the ""contingent"" system.

Vitalistic, Bergsonian, speculative, occasionally given to oversimple polarizations or over-vague generalizations, yes. But at times utterly beguiling, as in the description of the aesthetics of bower birds, the chilling encounter of the wasp and the tarantula, and the odd waking-sleep-like cycle of a fish ""with the splendidly salacious name of slippery dick.
