A new tree of life Early in Earth’s history, there existed an organism that would give rise to all the species known today. In 1994, Christos Ouzounis and Nikos Kyrpides gave this shadowy creature a name: LUCA, for the last universal common ancestor. Studies of DNA sequences taken from plants, fungi, animals, bacteria, and another form of one-celled organism called Archaea proved that it must have existed. But until recently, scientists could say very little else about it.
Porphyrian tree Porphyry's Isagoge was originally written in Greek, but was translated into Latin in the early 6th century C.E. by Boethius. Boethius's translation became the standard philosophical logic textbook in the Middle Ages. Until the late 19th century, it was still being taught to students of logic. In medieval education, the standard introduction to Aristotle's works was via Porphyry's Isagoge, and division entered the educated consciousness in the form of 'Porphyry's Tree'. It is not clear that Porphyry himself, in the relevant passage, went any further than Aristotle in recommending division. But his brief comment was developed into the Tree by medieval logicians.
Various evolutionary ideas had already been proposed to explain new findings in biology. There was growing support for such ideas among dissident anatomists and the general public, but during the first half of the 19th century the English scientific establishment was closely tied to the Church of England, while science was part of natural theology. Ideas about the transmutation of species were controversial as they conflicted with the beliefs that species were unchanging parts of a designed hierarchy and that humans were unique, unrelated to other animals.

Qabbalah - Kabbalah Tree of Life Kabbalah is an interpretation (exegesis, hermeneutic) key, "soul" of the Torah (Hebrew Bible), or the religious mystical system of Judaism claiming an insight into divine nature. The term "Kabbalah" was originally used in Talmudic texts, among the Geonim, and by early Rishonim as a reference to the full body of publicly available Jewish teaching. In this sense Kabbalah was used in referring to all of known Oral Law. Kabbalah, Qabbalah
DNA shows the Tree of Life to be more like a Web of Life. For thousands of years and in many cultures, the Tree of Life has been a symbol of life, an icon of creation and a map of kinship. Over the past 175 years, scientists have created various Trees of Life that show how all creatures alive today have evolved over time. Scientific Trees of Life, also known as “phylogenetic trees,” are based on DNA sequence similarities that show how all creatures are related evolutionarily. Tree of Life
