|01 - Variations Under Domestication||At First We Invented the Wheel||
A while back, I tried to climb back up the tree.
It was on a hill side, and trying to hold on to a steady branch,
it broke loose and I fell down.
Trying to get up I accidentally stepped on the broken branch.
Rolling downhill uncontrollably, I broke a leg.
My friend, who was near and saw what happened,
rolled us down the short hill, using a slightly better branch.
Later, there was a road there, and they wheeled me into the ambulance.
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Computer Programs||
According to the D. Postulate, computer programs behave
like life with possibly one critical exception:
Their conditions of life,
which are the hardware machines that store them,
do not behave in accordance with the D. Postulate.
Its like earth being hit by a meteor every so often.
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Attack of the Clones||
Charles Darwin goes to great length to explain why
Domesticated Selection works much faster than Natural Selection
and also creates monstrosities.
In short, the selection process is not guided by survival.
Rather, the selection is done by man.
Despite common misunderstanding, cloning merly means
the genes have a single origin, much like in asexual reproduction, so common in plants and lower life forms.
Mutations always occur, regardless,
and variations are guranteed to always exist.
One must first select what to clone.
If cloning becomes common, for man or animal,
standards for early abortions will also soon develop,
thereby falling in the laps of the D. Postulate.
|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
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Sliced Bread||
Is but a small symbiotic element in the evoltion of the knife.
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Muscle Memory||
Looking at the development of elements of
muscle memory in our brain as we pass through time,
It is easy to show that they meet the conditions set by the D. Postulate:
reproduction - babies learn to speak by merely listening and copying.
Extinction - and they always make more mistakes than not and somehow manage
to totally extinguish the mistakes.
Variation - the degree is low:
We learn mostly by repeating the same material with slight variations.
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Crib||
Mankind mostly does not know we are still in the crib.
Being with the capacity to rule the world
for a mere 100,000 years is not long in Evolution terms.
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Isaac Asimov||
Some are developing knowledge in brainwash technology
that will make the man-made evolution-created telepathic-people from
Isaac Asimov's Foundation seem less magical.
|01 - Variations Under Domestication||Light Switch||
The single ancestor of all computer programs.
|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||Digital Languages||
Words in the language are created in a Domesticated selection process.
maybe an extinct ancestor of "I heard you" -
is the parent form of "Yes", and also of "No".
Knowledge advances bring new space for words to develop,
just like when the rain comes more flowers can grow.
Countless other changes in the environment always occur
and invite new forms to come to existence.
As words evolve and become better understood
as distinct species,
the vocabulary of the language is digitized.
When the chairs and the table were all rocks
the same height, they didn't call them furniture.
