Start from the standpoint of embedded cycles and astrobiology. As the solar system traverses our milky way galaxy there is a recurring long cycle of asteroid bombardment during the so called late heavy bombardment that is hypothesized as being key to bringing water to the earth. This would be some 3.8 billion years ago.
All life on earth has embedded within it an harmonic mechanism based upon the 24 hour rotational circadian cycle. The suprachiasmatic nucleus in the brain as well as clock genes have been shown to be based upon this cycle. What is the inter-relationship of these two vastly disparate cycles? They both involve a functional relationship of two distinct domains: the living and inert. Or as it relates to this planet the lithosphere and the biosphere. Now bring the third domain that Vernadsky identified into view: the noosphere. Cantor's theory of transfinites is a furthering of Nicholas of Cusa's principle of embedded subsuming powers of all creation governed by the Non-other. The Promethean ethos of Beethoven's symphonic compositions precisely evinces this very same principle:
