    Interesting article on the spark that leads to intelligence:

    "The researchers suggest that intelligent behavior stems from the impulse to seize control of future events in the environment."
    "The new research proposes that entropy is directly connected to intelligent behavior. "[The paper] is basically an attempt to describe intelligence as a fundamentally thermodynamic process," said Wissner-Gross."

    Also, from this slashdot article:
    "Recent work in cosmology has suggested that universes that produce more entropy (or disorder) over their lifetimes tend to have more favorable properties for the existence of intelligent beings such as ourselves."

    oceanic CO 2 levels correspond to higher sea temps.....that melt polar ice. Lots of ties to QB 5, EMF 7.

    In the big picture of things, Dr K, do you support the hypothesis of global warming (human or otherwise?) I would refer you to the interesting ppl at whatsupwiththat.com

    You need to read CT 7 carefully and would not ask this.

    Those scientists are trying to have their cake and eat it too. They intersperse terms like "natural selection", "adapt", "evolve", "only the fittest survive", "those with only the most advantageous genes survived". The scientists then go on to say there were changes in the abundance of certain genes in larvae one week old. That last bit sounds like epigenetic expression as opposed to a natural selection process (which perhaps would have killed off most of the larvae that were unfit - my words). Maybe there are two camps of researchers growling at each other from different sides of the table.

    Most people cannot fathom that genetic changes can be other than completely random.
