|01 - Variations Under Domestication||The A.I. EGO TRip||
We are not stupid for having invented computers.
Just for having thoughts that they will be like us one day.
Amino Acids are not life.
Neither is rust.
Nor are computers.
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Trained Genes||
Genesis Ch. 30, V. 32:
Let me pass through all your flock today,
removing from there all the speckled and spotted sheep,
and all the brown ones among the lambs,
and the spotted and speckled among the goats"
Jacob evidently understood evolution theory much better than Laban.
My cat is very well trained.
She knows how to pee for people.
The tendency to mess around with one's droppings or urine
is very common in nature.
Nevertheless, cats don't really do That in nature.
This trait is human created.
By ever so slightly being different in litter habits then other cats,
and having been carefully selected for the virtue of cleanliness,
over many generations, a habit was formed in the genes.
Habit Use and Disuse
Walk Like an Egyptian
|02 - Variations Under Nature||Fear of the Amoeba||
If you approach an Amoeba with a sharp needle close
enough without touching it, it will move to avoid it.
Fear is a rather complex emotional response to danger,
having a very ancient ancestor.
The amoeba is not aware of the political and territorial
wars with its neighboring amoebas.
In time it will be, and it will also develop the
necessary mental powers to deal with the issue,
and their evolving mid-stage imperfections.
We are in a very early mid-stage in this respect.
|03 - Struggle for existence||Be fruitful and Multiply||
Genesis, Ch. 1, V. 21-22:
So God created great sea creatures and every living thing
that moves, with which the water abounded,
according to their kind, and every winged bird
according to its kind.
And God blessed them, saying:
"Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas,
and let birds multiply on the earth"
Genesis, Ch. 1, V. 28:
Then God blessed them, and God said to them:
"fill the earth and subdue it;
have dominion over the fish of the sea,
over the birds of the air,
and over every living thing that moves on the earth"
This was some 5700 years ago, while Charles Darwin,
sitting on a four and a half billion year old rock in the corner,
smiled and said:
All creatures are created equal.
They will all subdue one another.
There is no dominion save what you create for yourself,
and this is how we got thus far, dominion included.
