Genetics; Instant Predator Modification

Postby Jakob » Thu Mar 18, 2021 4:16 am

One minor adjustment and you have out of a human a full grown predatory mind and capacity;
add a infrared to the visual spectrum.

I dont know how deep that goes, but image. Such a person would be "in hell" in terms of what we can endure, I imagine - but if born as such, it would adapt.

But how is this not part of our spectrum? Why only this range which our brain divides in 7 colors?

And this is basically in regard to human biology...actual physical, material interactions embodied objectively in things that either are or are not true in regard to genes and vision and color.

Imagine then how unintelligible his posts are for me when the discussion switches over to human interactions in the is/ought world!!!

Over and again I suggest that we explore his points given a "particular context".

And over and again he "moves on". 8)
He was like a man who wanted to change all; and could not; so burned with his impotence; and had only me, an infinitely small microcosm to convert or detest. John Fowles

I have a more straightforward hunting technique. The difference is that my preys also consider me a prey. So we fight and eat each other.
