"Finch beaks", "claws", "feathers", "wings", etc. - all such are just
'nitch-filling within overall WDB2T.
That is, a well-'engineered' beak allows a finch to more easily
'climb' the WDB2T energy-gradient with respect to its local food
It's the 'climbing' of WDB2T that 'maps' the direction that
evolutionary dynamics follow, not 'crap-shoot' stuff.

| "Gene Study Finds Cannibal Pattern", By NICHOLAS WADE
||http://www.nytimes.com/2003/04/11/science/11CANN.html|| On the surface, the Article 'upholds' Darwin's position.
|| But look at what's actually going on - the problem was analyzed,
| ameliorating Choice was implemented.
|| Such does harken back to 'the genes', but only because the
| 'blueprint' for nervous systems' general-processor capacities
| within 'the genes' with respect to reproduction.
|| The Choice to 'move away from' prion disease derived in the driving
| of nervous systems' general-processor capacities via the
| of external WDB2T - via the experiencing of TD E/I(up) that the
| observables with respect to prion disease caused to occur within
| nervous systems of folks in Science.
|| Beyond their role as 'repository' for the 'blueprint' for the
| general-processor design for nervous systems, 'the genes' had
| to do with the decision to do something about 'moving away from'
| prion disease.
|| The 'moving away from' derived in experiential WDB2T ^ -1.
|| Get it?
|| All of Evolution is the same stuff. For example, consider the way
| facial symmetry enters into what's considered to constitute facial
| 'beauty' [which enters strongly into 'selection']. As is discussed
| AoK, Ap3 and Ap6, symmetry is 'just' visually-monitored TD E/I. The
| greater the symmetry the lower the TD E/I - which the nervous
| system's generalized processor recognizes as 'good' and 'mpves
| toward' in 'selection'.
|| Everything in 'selection' works like this - even instances in which
| 'destructive selections' occur [in which folks choose each other
| because they 'sense' 'attraction, via TD E/I-minimization, that
| up drawing them into relationships that'll only replicate their
| 'familiar' 'negative' stuff.
|| Really - I'd like to see anyone try to come up with =anything= of
| Evolution that does not reduce directly to WDB2T ^ -1 [that does
| reduce to 'climbing' the WDB2T energy-gradient.
|| Please, take a stab at such. You won't get it unless you try to
| up with something, and it's an important Q, so why not have a go at
