https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan11_Post.mp4 There's an idea in biology called "co-evolution." It's when two different species develop an overlapping relationship. Based on overlapping, self interest. The best example is like bees and flowers. The bees get free nectar from the flowers. The flowers get free pollination from the bees. Neither have self awareness, so neither has any idea what's going on. The math is a bit complex, and we'll need a bit of game theory to see how this would evolve. But we can simplify it a bit.

We humans can be described as "energy pumps." We need to consume at least 2000 calories per day. We eat organic matter, and when we digest it, we get the energy from the chemical bonds. We can be called "pumps" because we consume energy, and expend waste. But our waste goes back into the Earth, and the cycle continues. Bees and flowers have an overlapping, selfish relationship.

https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jan16Post.mp4 There's a pretty cool idea called "co-evolution." It describes how different species tend to form overlapping relationships. Most of them are between insects and plants. Simply because there are tons of different insects, and tons of different plants. Bees and flowers are the most popular example. The flowers give the bees nectar. The bees cross pollinate the flowers. To get the nectar, the bees have to go inside the flower. The pick up pollen on these small prickly things that have outside. An
