It's a nice idea but an extrapolation too far I think.
The very first prokaryotes on Earth were likely as simple as life can be therefore unable to be reduced in complexity and still be considered as
'life'. If we are to stretch the origins graph into non living entities then we might as well start the graph at the beginning of the universe.
Also, as another poster noticed, plants are missing from the rather empty plot and I guess they would have skewed the results significantly.
