You know how humans kinda suck at the beginning? I mean way back to the beginning, as an embryo. Embryo’s can’t do a whole lot. They wiggle around and kick and sit in their womb all day. 20 years later, they’re (hopefully) fully-fledged adults capable of all kinds of extraordinary feats like paying taxes and […]Read more "Creativity is Darwinian"
