Conclusions from the research paper ‘The origin of endothermy in synapsids and archosaurs and arms races in the Triassic’ suggest relatively very rapid evolution for creatures living, breeding, dying and with their bones and footprints being instantly fossilized in planet Earth’s dielectric environments.
# Birds and mammals likely acquired endothermy (warm-bloodedness) at the same time.
# Life remodelled itself most significantly in the aftermath of the devastating end-Permian mass extinction.
# The switchover happened in parallel with a shift in posture from sprawling to parasagittal in both major lineages.
The origin of endothermy in synapsids and archosaurs and arms races in the Triassic
University of Bristol palaeontologist Professor Mike Benton, identifies in the journal Gondwana Research that the ancestors of both mammals and birds became warm-blooded at the same time, some 250 million years ago, in the time when life was recovering from the greatest mass extinction of all time.
But a strong hint for this sudden origin of warm-bloodedness in both synapsids and archosaurs at exactly the time of the Permian-Triassic mass extinction was found in 2009. Tai Kubo, then a student studying the Masters in Palaeobiology degree at Bristol and Professor Benton identified that all medium-sized and large tetrapods switched from sprawling to erect posture right at the Permian-Triassic boundary.
Their study was based on fossilized footprints. They looked at a sample of hundreds of fossil trackways, and Kubo and Benton were surprised to see the posture shift happened instantly, not strung out over tens of millions of years, as had been suggested. It also happened in all groups, not just the mammal ancestors or bird ancestors.

Ultra rapid or near instant evolution through changes in worldwide and local electromagnetic energies?
Cambrian explosion and Cambrian radiation mean something completely different yet so appropriate to the life and all things living in the Electric Universe.
A large (approximately 0.9%), abrupt global decrease in the ratio of the stable isotope 13C to that of 12C, coincides with this extinction, and is sometimes used to identify the Permian–Triassic boundary in rocks that are unsuitable for radiometric dating. Further evidence for environmental change around the P–Tr boundary suggests an 8 °C (14 °F) rise in temperature, and an increase in CO2 levels by 2000 ppm (for comparison, the concentration immediately before the industrial revolution was 280 ppm, and the amount today is about 410 ppm). There is also evidence of increased ultraviolet radiation reaching the earth, causing the mutation of plant spores.
It has been suggested that the Permian–Triassic boundary is associated with a sharp increase in the abundance of marine and terrestrial fungi, caused by the sharp increase in the amount of dead plants and animals fed upon by the fungi.

Alfred de Grazia’s Quantavolution proposes large steps in life from what humans term as disasters, Doomsdays, catastrophes, yet is it for life in general on planet Earth? After an explosion living things seem to radiate in glorious numbers and adaptions in the new Global atmospheric electrical circuits of the air, salty ocean waters and in the earth itself with Telluric currents flowing through it.
Quantavolution theory maintains that the world from its beginnings, including the world of life and humanity, has changed largely by quantum leaps, rather than by tiny increments over great stretches of time.
The catastrophes responsible for the development of the theory of quantavolution were immensely greater than these, to be sure, but the elemental forces at work, the chemistry, the electricity, the psychic reactions are typical and homologous. As with a host of experiences of the past and present, the individual person must learn about catastrophes of the world — past, present, and future — from the testimony of the rocks, the skies, the fossils, the carvings, the ruins, and then from recorded history and logical thought.
The theory of Quantavolution deals with the behavior of substances of the real world so far as one can sense them. It proposes that change in nature and life occur largely as the result of catastrophic events; the events originate in the skies, which contain forces that are immeasurably greater than any in man or Earth and that are especially electrical.
It is vital to appreciate that in Quantavolution, the word ‘catastrophe’ loses its completely bad connotation; for what the world is today is an effect of catastrophe or, better, of Quantavolution, whose goodness and badness are intertwined and to be judged by the philosophy of good and bad consequences.

EU theory suggests the possibility of very rapid or near instantaneous evolutionary type changes in animals, birds, humans and any forms of biological, electrochemical, electrical life.
Wallace Line, boundary between the Oriental and Australian faunal regions, proposed by the 19th-century British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace. The line extends from the Indian Ocean through the Lombok Strait (between the islands of Bali and Lombok), northward through the Makassar Strait (between Borneo and Celebes), and eastward, south of Mindanao, into the Philippine Sea.
Although many zoogeographers no longer consider the Wallace Line to be a regional boundary, it does represent an abrupt limit of distribution for many major animal groups. Many fish, bird, and mammal groups are abundantly represented on one side of the Wallace Line but poorly or not at all on the other side.
