Survival of the cutest.

Darwin's re-proposal of the Evolutionary theory.

1. Variation: The amount of cuteness in every population varies.

2. Competition: Species compete amongst themselves and with other species for attaining the cutest possible mate.

3. Offspring: Some organisms have more cuteness than is necessary and may spill them over to their offspring. Results may vary.

4. Genetics: It was believed that cuteness is genetically inherited, but sufficient evidence has been provided to prove otherwise. Organisms are expected to pass on their cuteness to the next generation, but chances are that cross overs are unsuccessful.

5. Natural selection: Those organisms with the cutest traits are more likely to survive and reproduce. Survival of the cutest.

Evolution from a microscopic perspective is very different from the nutshell perspective. In a social environment, its not the most talented one that rises (there are exceptions), but the most tactful ones. If you want to evolve in academic environments, showing that you are working is more important than working itself. If you want to leave something behind for the next generation, its money - not pride, not values, not culture - but money. Thats the inheritance they'll need the most.
This is what Evolution means now.

i have a theory about how bangalore [traffic] was the inspiration for many scientific theories.
obviously, i need to save that for my blog sometime... :-)

also see the mastercard ad - money can't buy everything. for everything else, there is mastercard..

but, in real life, money does make a lof of difference.

@sivaguru "uncle" (??)

I agree money makes a lot of difference. But it pains me to see that for some people, thats all that matters. Maybe 'all' is an exaggeration. But its an unfair division.
