About Me:
I write physics-based generalized evolution theory (evolution theory in which biology is a non-special case).

Welcome, Randall! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like  Partnership Vision.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.
