Brain expansion (Evolution)

DAVID: I'll stick with history. Bigger brains, better artifacts is all we know.

dhw: You don’t stick with history. Your invention is described above. The existence of bigger brains and better artefacts does not in any way contradict my theory.

All we know is bigger brains are found with improved artifacts.

dhw:You skipped the example of reading, so I’ll also skip to the brain cells:

QUOTES: “Brain cells talk to one another. This synchronized cell-to-cell crosstalk regulates neuroinflammation and the immune system…

A key factor is how neurons communicate among themselves. These novel molecules participate in delivering messages to the overall synaptic organization to ensure the accurate flow of information through neuronal circuits.”

"'It's like an orchestra," says Bazan. "You need a conductor, and this is the role that DHA plays. Such a large-scale complexity first requires violinists, or in this case, synapses, which are highly sensitive sites of stroke injury that become messengers to target vulnerable cells.'"

dhw: I regard these findings as support for the theory that cooperation between intelligent cells/cell communities is the key not only to brain expansion but also to the whole process of evolution. And to answer your usual question, their specific form of intelligence may have been designed by your God. (See also under "plant immunity".)

DAVID: And as usual I think God gave the cells all the instructions they needed to respond intelligently, with the appearance they are innately intelligent.

dhw: Yes, this is a matter of opinion on which we differ.

As we have proven over time, our opinions will differ.
