I don't know which was first, fish or these stromatelites found in Shark bay Australia; but, these domes are blue-green algae communities that are protected from the sun by means of minerals secreted by themselves. Here, they've dammed up nature in order to make conditions suitable for themselves. James Lovelock came up with a Gaia theory that says life came up with the ozone layer, and keeps the temperature here on earth good and consistent for life itself to survive. However true the extent of this theory, it seems that life has dammed up nature on it's own to make its survival possible. I've often wondered whether intelligence comes by means of some process of damming up nature. I've yet to figure out how.
