Be careful to compare recent properties of "primitive" organisms with
properties of organs or single cells of "higher" organisms. The evolution of
recent flagelats lastes as long as our evolution, and the properties of the
recent species are adapted to the environment as the cells of the human
brain are adapted to their environment.
