Because there are cheekily three types of domain/environment, three different ways of storing information and passing that knowledge on, I propose three different types of evolution.
And we've already educated you that your notion of rocks passing on information is total bollocks. Your insistence otherwise shows that a) you wouldn't recognize a clue if it was having its way with your behind and b) you're full of it.

Anthropophagy? I think another word for that is "Carnevalism".

"Carnevalism." Sounds like what sounded, to my English ears, like Carn Edison (for example in "Joey" on Dylan's album "Desire").

It appears in a much earlier song too: "But I didn't pay the Carnid bill, So the radio didn't work so well." What's "Carnid", asked this right-of-the-Atlantic person. No idea. It's a mystery.

Listening to American music while knowing nothing at all about America. Problematic.

Let's put the "carne" (ES) back in Carneval! It's a dog eat dog world. But I guess it's "Carnaval", isn't it? A "carney" is a guy who works on the midway (a fairground, or amusement park). Mark Knopfler sings a few songs about the midway, and Joni MItchell wrote a great, great song about the midway, titled "That Song About the Midway".

Nowadays, you can always look up a lyric you don't hear distinctly. The ones I see here (via google) are apparently at European sites, so the contributors don't always get the vocabulary or spelling right.

You almost have it with "Carn Edison", but the way we see it in print is "Con Edison" short for Consolidated Edison (Con Ed, for shorter), the electric utility (at least in those old days) for the New York (city) area.

Why would you do that? Mishearing lyrics is almost the most fun you can have with music. :lol:

A favorite from the Bard of Hibbing, my misheard lyric was:

"my sensitive manatee has gone down the drain" (from "Not Dark Yet")

I sense a shift in tone. It's deplorable! Doppler-able?

The comment is more about those who came up with hypotheses, controls, experiments, observations, and the like. I think you know this, and you know you're not one of these. You may have a valid point about web forums, but there's only a negative in the direction you're going. Some web forums, such as those related to physics and mathematics topics, which are moderated to keep them on track, would send you packing in a few days, if not sooner. You're allowed at RatSkep precisely because you don't have to maintain any particular focus on scientific topics. This thread is in the Pseudoscience sub-forum. Don't forget that. You are right where you belong, and you post here precisely because you are permitted to do so, and not necessarily because you have anything whatsoever to say that's of interest to anyone.

Paul, I have something for you. Originally motivated by somebody else who had a brilliant idea and no idea how to present it, it's a sort of how-to on getting your groundbreaking theory taken seriously. I decided it was time to polish it off.
We've all done it, I'm sure; leapt out of the bath and run off naked down the street, having solved one of the thorniest problems in philosophy.

OK, maybe we've not all literally done it in the way Archimedes is purported to have done in what's almost certainly an apocryphal tale. Still, over the years, I've encountered many, many examples of people doing the easy bits of Feynman's famous problem-solving algorithm and running off metaphorically to expose their pendulous danglies to the internet at large without doing what Archimedes had done prior to his extra-ablutive excursion and fulfilled the difficult middle step.
Eureka!
