Surely this cocks up the Theory of Evolution a bit?

Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection

Phenotypic variation exists among individuals and the variation is heritable. Those individuals with heritable traits better suited to the environment will survive.

Bumblebee see, Bumblebee do. Bumblebee passes KNOWLEDGE on by some inexplicable mechanism. Bumblebee colony makes huge leap forward without inheriting any genetic anything. Bumblebee offspring do too, not by phenotypic variation, but because they got taught by their Moms and Dads or at Bumblebee school – well whatever!

This is not a beneficial mutation over many generations – it’s brains in the present time.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
