Thank you for the link...
. perhaps plausible... but whether realistic or in fact the underlying cause or not, is not known or can't be proved.
As I said I accept
" as a Concept... but understand it perhaps a little different than many others...
Each individual species seams to adapt at different rates and degrees, while some appear not to...
One example regarding desire.
Desire is required to procreate a species or the next generation would be non existent.
In the case of the human species, we have choice in whether or not we have our offspring but not all do, but this is still driven by desire.
Some call it natural selection but really we don't consider this when we choose a partner do we?.
Rarely we consider the DNA
structure of the next generation is made up of...
If we did, we would be disease free by now, and NOT
We would have mastered these conditions as most of us don't want these conditions anyway.
us to start procreating in the first place???
(If all started from a single cell in a pond, even if there were many different individual cells floating around).
Another thing is, we have components in our genitalia (in the case of the female) which allow for sexual pleasure, (which we don't need to get into)
yet have nothing at all to do with child birth or for that matter the procreation of the Species.
So what caused
our Genetic code to mutate to introduce
"Sexual Reproduction" into the general make up and behavior patterns of many
species, yet some self procreate, some being animals while other plants we even have hermaphrodites (even in the human species though rare)?
introduced these Wings, or caused them to form instead of arms. Why Two wings in some cases and multiple section wings in others
(Insects) but never One only ???
the bird obtained these wings, (in its Genetic code) what caused the bird to obtain these, knowing nothing at
all about air or
How would it know the need to fly or that it could fly for that matter???
The birds wing is rather a complex structure, not just involving the bone structure alone but also feathers, the muscles to control them, and the
brain structure to use such (the control of these).
And it is desire which causes the bird to fly (and its flight path) or not fly.
And were did Desire come from in the first place and how and why ???
It is desire which appears to cause the physical behavior of most Species or are they all just automatic without any knowledge of the environment or
Perhaps Not self awareness but its environment but what
produces the desire to live and not die i.e. be eaten.
Although most species have in fact, similar DNA
they may vary exceptionally.
Today much research is being done with RNA
and it would appear we are only scratching the surface regarding the complete make up which controls
the structure of each species.
It may very well be we discover much, much more in the future, we at present don't even know exists.
I think you will find the whole subject is far far more complex, than the human species can imagine, well at present anyway.
I really think a few more hundred or even thousands of years, involving research is required before we can get anywhere near understanding the truth,
regarding our species or for that matter any other species.
We as a species are very, very primitive and have a long, long way to go yet...
