    Go vincent!

    Seeing as we've sort of bumped into the KT boundary and all that, I'd
    like to ask a specific to see if Sheldrake has anything concrete (as
    opposed to just the generic mechanism) to offer:

    We talked about novelty under MR as coming from a sort of hybridisation
    between existing morphs; so how did flying creatures come from a
    non-flying world? If the Drakester hasn't done that one specifically,
    are there any similar examples where he's actually postulated which MRs
    have crossed to give a new line (transition to land, rise of flowering
    plants, rise of homoiothermy etc.)?
