Yes, there is good evidence that, for example, rats which learn how to progress through a certain type of maze & obtain a 'prize' at the end (tasty
snack), once they have learnt, the progress of rats on other continents who also are shown the exact same maze, will suddenly be able to complete the
maze in a confident & successful manner. As new generations of rats are born & subjected to the same tests, it is found that they seem to be born
with the skill-set needed to complete that type of maze, to a far greater degree than ever before.
This indicates that some sort of epigenetic 'field' of memory exists, a collective unconscious within the species of rats, such that when a group of
rats learn, subsequent generations are predisposed to improved capability. This effect is found in many species, including humans, and seems to show
up at this time in a greater natural capability for complex gaming activities, far greater than anything that was witnessed when video games first
became super popular in the early 90s.
For further insight on this front, please review the writings of Rupert Sheldrake, whose 'morphic resonance' hypothesis &
ongoing research is simply astounding
. He's a part of 'establishment' science in some respects, but is unafraid to compel interest in a
non-traditional theories, and morphic resonance, as an hypothesis, is far superior to the traditional neo-darwinian BS describing how species appear
in form & function, plus how they learn & adapt behaviour over time. Sheldrake's hypothesis suggests a solution to the key mechanism regarding the
way that changes to the form/ shape/ functions of a particular animal or plant are so quickly adopted into the species as a whole, thus offering a
much more sophisticated & common sense rationalisation regarding HOW evolution actually happens. Faulty/ Erroneous/ Mutated genes my backside -
evolution is not blind - the morphic field of a particular species can literally survey the past to inform the future. The concept is connected to
theory regarding the materia prima, cosmic ether, or astral/akashic medium
- the multi-dimensional surface upon which our existence is
Broken gene transcription should rationally lead to broken structures deviating blindly from the previous pattern of the organism, which assumedly had
lived well enough before having its form randomly 'broken' by faulty transcription. Indeed, such episodic faulty transcription rationally should
cause the organism's phenotype to veer off into unintended territory, an action highly likely to lead to failures in the form/ functionality of the
offspring, leading to early death, leading to a weakened species posture within the weave of nature.
If the watchmaker is truly blind, as claimed, and cannot see the form/ function of the species overall, how can randomised failures in transcription
lead to improvements in the form/ function? I know that supposedly vast stretches of time (many somehow survivable chain-linked transcription
mutations later) cause a 'better' phenotype of form/functionality to be (God only knows how) achieved. But sincerely, the cumulative odds of multiple
generation-linked, perfectly beneficial, non-harmful, survivable mutations, are extremely long - to the point that even many tens of millions of years
of alleged blind 'improvements' cannot realistically ensure such chains of beneficial mutations in more than a relative handful of cases.
Surely the watchmaker is perfectly well-sighted! He is able to review the form & function of each organism, as he constructs their devices - nature's
myriad forms - in the fulfillment of each genotype within niches which are surveyed by the innate intelligent programming methodology of DNA, accorded
form & function within the pantheon of available lineages, each one connected to every other part in a symphonic harmony which enchants our rational,
human reflection upon the grandeur of the natural world. Morphic resonance as an innate programming driver, to codify the DNA so that in future
generations no 'attention' is needed to ensure the DNA will fulfill its task of producing the changed aspects of the organism, is far superior as a
theory to posit the witnessed self-referential intelligence we perceive as being somehow operative in the processes of change within species, per the
morphic resonance hypothesis
, particularly so in light of the 'greatest loser hypothesis' of a blind, deaf, dumb & stupid watchmaker tinkering
with equally blind, stupid genes.
In reality, fields of inherent memory containing all information on form & function, intelligently arrayed for transcription attempts in the
development of improved offspring, are able to use the brain/ innate processing construct to interpret the qualia of the outcome of the attempts at
genetic improvement from one generation to the next. This sort of theory would account for the witnessed rapid & sudden huge changes in the form,
function & extension within the biomes they inhabit, of a vast proportion of widely different species, at certain times in history - as witnessed in
the pre-Cambrian explosion event evident in the fossil record, which is otherwise unexplained by the 'random chains of linked mutations over millions
of years' neo-Darwinian BS theory.
