Evolutionary Success

Heretofore, Evolutionary Success has been considered the ability to have grand children. This is a far too basic goal based on an overly simplistic perspective of the evolutionary process – one that focuses entirely on genetics.

We have since learned that a single generation can create a toxic soup that stays around for generations, and that evolution involves both behavior and genetic traits working together in complex ways.

Thus, Evolutionary Success is the ability to have, and/or enable others to have, great, great, great, grandchildren.
