That’s right, a massive, bubbling ocean of magma at 7,000 degrees Fahrenheit and 1.4 million times the pressure at the Earth’s surface.  Bad.  Ass.

Yes, and if it were not for that the earth would be a barren desert. This moving ocean creates the magnetic field which holds everything together and its shields the earth from solar flares which would wipe out all living things in an instant.

How do you know its bubbling?  What kind of gas is making the bubbles?  LOL

And it drives plate tectonics, without which life couldn’t have evolved either.

Yes sir’re, all one big beautiful organism.

Oh lordie it is,
First little volcanic blips breaking through the ocean started forming ~  sliding about the surface of the globe bumping into each other once in a while and uniting.

This more massive crashing together, initiated subduction and the formation of more volcanoes and land formation, sliding around, still bumping in other blobs floating about the globe. A self feeding process of growth, all driven by that hot molten, pressurized, middle Earth ocean.

Then, way later in the show, when life appeared on Earth, that started creating organic matter to add to the rocky matter.  This organic flux joined the subduction & volcanic dance, to create all sorts of new materials and gases, of never before seen compositions of material, which in turn joined the party. As this blue jewel rotates around its axis revolving around the sun. And then came us.

Yup,
Awweesoommme!!!
