042-representation and evolution
that representations exist in the universe of creatures means that representation making offers advantages. the problem of moving requires representation making.
where to move
what to move toward
what to move away from
the basic representation the cell must be making is how not to disintegrate. and the dna must always be in the process of being modified to prevent dis-integration events. this is a random process. but over time, if dis-integration events occur, and the cell survives the, and the cell has a mechanism to keep the dis-integration molecules around, then that trait will be conserved, and the cell will pass that trait onto daughter cells.
