It is hard to reply to all of the changes that have occurred in my thinking within a span of half a year or so.
The parent-offspring relation is generational while the ancestor-descendent one is equally temporal but can be spatially circumscribed somewhat more on account of being larger.
The symmetric diagram I presented above came to anticpate (for me) some statements made by Wright (showing (me) that some scholarship that relies on Provine'86 (words "dimension" and "direction" with respect 'peak shifts')) in his Volume II THEORY OF GENE FREQUENCIES, thus (for me again) geometrically dividing the space of quaternions of my own thinking since then... where Gould wrote of "vector of progress" instead, consequently my mind has not rotated back to this specific thought as of yet.
I have been keeping some kind of Cladoceran (if like Daphnia shows two kinds of reproduction (sexual and parthenogenic)) and made the identical observation reported in 1925 by Robertson that if light and electromotive force are applied large but not small water fleas flee to the light. By following up on this I may indeed be led to reconsider the subject of this thread. If, in the mean time you have a specific dimension to discuss, simply direct my attention to it.
You are flatering yourself to think that you "went" around something here. If you want to address me rather than the topic please take that to http://www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&f=14&t=1808&m=1 I'll address ANYTHING you want there...(I you and I stoped rather than went around, and this seems to me to be because YOU did not answer MY questions, not because of me not posting. I will resume that topic with you if you like but you really need to address me directly as per above or else say only nice things etc (ethics and justice are two different things, creationists need justice but humanity needs some ethical norms first)
As for this topic I DID find a page that spelled out this "sex" for me in relation to other topics, I had keept it aside to scan for this thread. I will do that. It is here:
There is no reason why I may not be correct about sex here. This is a different issue than kinds(the link, again, would be with crosses or hybrids). If anyone really cares to know how I think I will explain this. (You had precluded me from addressing "kinds" at the margin of this diagram, which was where your thread was, this one is inside of that, to me.)
I am contemplating trying to define a Gladyshev thermostat via electrical paramaters that may induce the Cladocerans to switch TO sex (crossing)(DC currents cause electrode postivation while AC currents correlate with photopositivism, a combination programmed might work to facilliate the demonstration of the population divisions implicit in my sexual view).
