In previous posts, I’ve covered how neo-Darwinism can make biological redundancy more confusing than it should be.
Optimization algorithms enable the ant colony to decide how many ants to send to a given food source and when to drastically reduce the number.
Rewriting the categories of biological redundancy in terms of function clarifies their purpose and contribution.
A giraffe grows from a zygote to an 18-foot-tall adult while keeping its organs and systems coordinated. Limits to variation is a significant point to clarify.
It truly matters that we follow the evidence to its logical end and base our research and applications on that end.
