Lets suppost this guy is the genuis that we all wait to read his/her latest
research results.  It would destroy his/her support base if he says something
idiotic.  So he/she could test the waters with a wild idea to see how the
community of open minded individuals like our selves would respond.
I personally see nothing wrong with being wrong.  As far as his idea
is concerned at this time the topic does not interest me.  However, with
out a lot of thought I would say I could accept the idea tentatively
as being an example of how evolutionary forces started the process of
developing higher cognitive functions.  Ron Blue x011 at lehigh.edu
