most people should be closer to thinking in terms of adaptive evolution via ecological, social, neurogenic, and socio-cognitive niche construction, which makes sense.
control of homeostasis by the epigenetic effects of proper nutrition and social stress inhibition might prevent our diet-driven and social stress-driven extinction.
a molecule similar to GnRH is essential to nutrient chemical-dependent and pheromone-controlled reproduction in all species, including C. elegans.
Neuroscientists have known for many years precisely where the boundary lies between genetically predisposed attraction and learned associations in species from microbes to man.
It’s interesting to see Feldman indicate that “human movements drove a new form of natural selection” as if there was ever any other form of natural selection that had been detailed across species by anyone else.
Who does not know that the epigenetic effects of nutrient chemicals and pheromones on intracellular signaling and stochastic gene expression are responsible for speciation and extinction avoidance in species from microbes to man?
Of the 30-40 others who attended, none had ever before heard the term “biological embedding.”
