Evolution of Evolution

Here's another good link on Grey Thumb. Talks about far-sighted versus short sighted traits and the evolution of each.

It says it's possible for evolution to self-regulate these bad traits. It even mentions another alife simulator being used to prove this. Seems like they gave the creatures the ability to have check-point alles that directly block the negative traits. They also mention that it requires a hierarchy/group regulation to work, since it's in the groups best interest rather than the individual.

I'm going to try and load up a bot with a bunch of counter-attacks not biased by the species attacking. The One is similar to this already and seems to evolve better than most others.
