Abstract

The problems man is facing in his search for energy resources and ways of using energy should not be a priori different from those encountered by biosystems in the course of their evolution: we live in the same world and the rules of the game are similar. How the analogy can be drawn is shown in this paper; so too is the excellent fit between the two evolutionary paths. A very tentative scenario is drawn for the future, by extending the parallelism a bit forward in time.
