Didn't "cooperate" play a role too?

If you get a chance, take a gander at this:
It's my article on "The Xerox Effect" in PhysicaPlus, the
succulently-designed online publication of the Israeli Physical Society--the Israeli society of
"The Xerox Effect" tells the story of the first ten billion years of cosmic
history--the ten billion years before life began. It argues that this universe
has been seized by Darwinian evolution ever since its first microsecond of
existence. If you didn't fit, you died.
If you DID fit you did things we think of as uniquely human. You socialized.
Then you either dominated, subordinated, or were swallowed and digested by
the metabolic machinery of a sun or a black hole.
You followed Michael Waller's evolutionary dictum: "dominate, subordinate, or
die". Actually the Waller Law may need an amendment: "dominate, subordinate,
transform, or die".
If you agree or disagree with the article, please comment on it in the
discussion forum: http://physicaplus.org.il/forum_article_eng.html
If PhysicaPlus sees that this article generates online activity, it will open
itself to yet more articles taking big-picture points of view.
By the way, if you can figure out how the discussion forum works, by all
means let me know
