Or science in a slightly larger context:



Why is the mouse next to the human? It's an extract from a tree of only 3000 species. The human represents the euarchonta->primatomorpha->primates branch of en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euarchon… and the mouse represents the gliriformes->glires->rodentia branch.

That's why mice make pretty good test subjects, as they're only about 90 million years separated from us.

LOVE it! It's beautiful! Thanks!

I'm happy to say I was able to find my way home just by zooming in. 😀
