The Nature of Intelligence

08 Aug
Nature is extravagance within a framework
of minimum effective dose. Too much of anything
is poison. Too little is unnatural. A balancing process
continues perpetually, 
always moving toward synchronization.  A newly hatched
bird can locate a tree 3,000 miles away without fail.
Spermatozoa can succeed in fertilizing an egg without
taking a course in reproduction. 
DNA sequencing can detect sophisticated
coding that indicates primordial intelligence. Some
say this is accidental, 
whereas I think such reasoning is unfortunate.
