As I have stated before; being smart isn't so much as how much knowledge you have as it is coming to the right conclusions with the knowledge that you do have.
If that was true, Og the Caveman would have been the smartest man the world has ever seen because he figured out how to kill a deer by poking it with a sharp stick. But knowledge is cummulative and collectively owned, so one person coming to The Right Conclusion™ isn't the end of it.

Dirt is common - and not very valuable.

Life is like a Hot Wheels car. Sometimes it goes behind the couch and you can't find it.

The environment does not decay DNA to a less organized level as a function of time. Correct?
That depends on what "the environment" is. Inside a living organism, there's no particular reason for DNA to decay. It may mutate but mutation is change, not decay. On the other hand, if DNA is just lying around on the ground, say in a pool of blood, there are various mechanisms by which it can degrade - and there's no way of "fixing" it.
