Stathis: glad you agree with my wording. Several evolutionists (both Darwin-based and post-Darwinians) disagreed =- some fetish 'natural selection' in fitness maps, some swore to ADAPTATION, a sort of self organizing for a purpose. Besides I think I exceed the conventional 'evolution' in the extent of (as a history pf the process) from the 'occurrence' of a universe till its dissipation (into - as my narrative says) into the invariant plenitude of infinite symmetry where it came from. I am really glad that I could finally word my position into a simple formulation that sounds acceptable to you. (Of course 'offspring' stands for reaction-product and the entire image is not restricted to live features - whatever these may be).
