Had Earth = Cheeseburger, then Life = chem. adaptation to Cheeseburgers
Had the earth been a cheeseburger, life would have evolved as the best chemical adaptation to cheeseburgers. In other words, no matter what existed, life would be defined as the best most stable reaction to that environment.
My suggestion as to how life began:
UV energy from the sun –> strikes chemicals during the day, then goes away at night in a daily cycle that continues for 4 billion years.
Chemicals hit by the sun react in one of two ways
———-> 1. they are destroyed.
———-> 2. they continue to exist another day.
The UV cycle of energy repeats itself every day.
The chemicals that are not destroyed in this cycle develop two types of stability:
a. they are stable in not changing what is stable in that environment.
b. they are stable in changing what is not stable in that environment.
UV energy –> selection on chemicals —> the most stable continue to exit —>
they are stable in two ways —>
Stable a. take in and hold what is nurturing —> metabolism —-> anabolic
Stable b. block out, and excrete out what is not nurturing —> replication –> catabolic
There IS a direction to natural selection. With every step life gets better anabolic or catabolic processes.

Catabolic and Anabolic evolved, but they did not blend.
These posts are built on the premise of the evolution of catabolic and anabolic processes to other separate deconstructive and constructive processes.
