Now you are saying that Lamarckism equals creativity !?
And how do you see than its heredity, if like you say, Lamarckian processes
don 't enter at gene level !?
Do you see than the heredity as in Artefacts, or more as the inheritance of
acquired ' experiences ' / ' emotional states'/ .... inspired by those
Or something like la nature artificiel, or does it equals authenticity !?
That would make sense to me.
