The original population is 10e29 one-celled organisms saturating the oceans.
The saturation level for these simulations is 30,000 organisms per cubic milli-
meter to an average depth of 7 meters over 450 million square km of oceans.
This produces the extreme population base that assures that should the original
question be answered in the negative, it would not be due to underestimating
the population of the original sample. That is, should these simulations indicate
that an evolutionary boundary does exist, it cannot be well-argued that the ori-
ginating population ("1-A") was too small.
