Initiation of human life germinates from the fertilization of a mature egg cell by a living, motile spermatozoa as depicted in this image. A fertilized egg contains a multitude of highly selective genetic information that determines our species as humans. A fertilized egg has the same shape and appearance as that of a fertilized egg of a non human origin. Earth, water, and air as depicted in this image reflect the sources and supporting elements of evolutionary life on earth.
