The low water level in Great Lakes exposes vast stretches of otherwise submerged bedrock of the Canadian Shield.

Chaos is a natural state of matter in the universe. Life as we know it, a fragile homeostatic equilibrium, is a notable exception. The purposeful Life's modulation of atmospheric content has sustained live existence for eons. The inflow and outflow of solar energy primarily depended on water vapour and carbon-containing molecules concentration.

Life survives by carving out an orderly space of living conditions in the physical world, where the natural state of matter is a disorder.

Indeed, science-like statements could have limited appeal.
