I Made This

Postby Elen Sila » Fri Jul 23, 2010 7:05 am

I spent the last few days making this. Can anyone tell me what it is?

Looks like you mapped the evolution of hominids from sponges. That is, of course, if I remember anything from my high school biology class. I'm pretty sure hexactinellids are sponges, though.

Edit: upon further inspection it appears that it could also be something to do with relationships between species. But I'll be honest, I'm probably not the best person to be guessing stuff like that.

Zoom doesn't matter, it blurs before you get big enough to read it.

I bet it has something to do with his language.

opera zooms too.

but zooming ruins the legibility as much as having it small.

Yea. I could read it. Seems like a species list to me.

Voly's edit was warmest. I was looking for one of two specific words - "cladogram" or "phylogeny".

If you inspect closely, you will see that I've included one polyphyletic group (insectivora) and one paraphyletic group (primates), despite my general policy against that. I also excluded a number of vertebrate clades as I started getting lazy towards the end, though I was quite thorough in getting every invertebrate clade.

Why what? Why did I make it at all?

Truth be told, I was disgruntled by works of fiction that had animalistic avatars in them, but tended to have disproportionate representation in certain clades. For example, Shadow Of The Colossus features two colossi who are big cats, two who are bovines, one tortoise, one snake, one lizard, one bizarre flying reptilian finned thingy (a dragon?), one horse, one eel, one avian, and five humanoids. Thinking about this got me interested in the full dispersal of the animal kingdom, and eventually I started looking up phylogenies and wishing I had a complete one.

Well that's a fair enough reason, I guess. I just couldn't think of a point to sitting down and mapping those.

BTW, you should see the list of the unused characters. There's about 30.

P.S. 2 of those humanoids are Simion, not homosapien. Just wondering if that matters in the case.

The group "Hominidae" includes gorillas and chimpanzees, and the word "humanoid" literally just means "human-like", which applies to non-human primates as well.

Also, I normally wouldn't call someone out on spelling errors, but in the world of cladistic names orthography is important, so I'd like to point out that "homosapien" isn't a word. It's two words, "homo" and "sapiens". (Also, "sapiens", contrary to popular belief, is singular. "Sapien" is not a word.)

Fair enough. Biological kingdoms aren't my interest, so you are the expert (comparatively) here.

Is this art and creativity or Anarch being autistic?

North american "autistic" is homophonous with non- north american "artistic".

Anyway, I'm currently revising the cladogram, and will probably put up the new version in this thread at some point. It's going to be a lot more intuitive; but you'll see eventually.

unless NA's autistic is literally pronounced with a strong r, then no.
at least, not by the english speaking people i met. be they from kosovo, holland or brittain.
