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.
