    Hi Kenneth Van Oost -

    >Now you are saying that Lamarckism equals creativity !?

    Design is lamarckian- although I'd prefer to say that lamarckianism uses
    design as a force, which is its mistake.

    Design is goal oriented. Evolution is blind to the future.

    Design involves patterns. Evolution is chaotic.

    - Wade
