Shock wave energy plays an important role in formation of pseudo-life precursors (PLP), recycling of carbon-bearing compounds in primitive Earth and Mars. Strong candidates for the PLP is carbohydrate SO3 which shows duplicating reaction (polymerization), enzyme-like activity (supramolecules), recycling system between monomer-polymer, between inorganic-organic molecules) and easy formation in anoxic condition. The PLP can be formed widely if there are hot sea-water and carbon dioxide atmosphere on primitive Earth and Mars. Formation of primitive life evolution (mainly on the Earth) is caused by prolonged heavy and slow impacts from Earth's ring fragments (not from asteroids) produced by giant impact. Primitive sea-water is formed after multiple impacts.
