English term or phrase: ticker-tape notion
As such, the idea of Gaia turns Voltaire’s Panglossian notion on its head: instead of Man (i.e. life) having inherited the best of all possible worlds, life has rather generated the best of all possible worlds. Surely too, the idea of Gaia hits hard against the ticker-tape notion of the ‘selfish gene’ in which life combats life through advantageous mutations to inherit the ‘Earth’....

La idea de Gaia, como tal, pone de cabeza la noción panglosiana de Voltaire. No es que el hombre (i.e. la vida) haya heredado el mejor de los mundos posibles, sino que la vida ha generado el mejor de los mundos posibles. Y sin duda la idea de Gaia también se opone en forma contundente a la teoría estereotipada (???) ticker-tape notion del “gen egoísta”, según la cual la vida lucha contra la vida mediante mutaciones ventajosas para heredar la “Tierra”
