The planetary-biologist focused his fish eyes on the white wall and images depicting evolution appeared one after the other. His two doctoral students watched with occasional exchange of words.
The image changed and a series on dolphins started.
The students seemed to be agitated.
Student-1: It is so like Oannes, our ancestor.
Biologist – True! However, Oannes short-circuited the evolutionary chain and left behind these creatures.
Student-2: Was his interference justified?
Biologist- All I can say is that without his interference the humans on Earth would still be inventing the wheel.
Student-2: And the wheel remains the greatest hurdle in their development.
The piscean-professor smiled. ‘You will have to leave soon, son.’
