    Ugh. This kitty is in heat and has expectations of me I'm just not going to carry out.

    Go away, kitty!

    Christ I remember that happening the first year we had our cats, before they were fixed.

    We had to shut them in seperate rooms (we have a boy cat and a girl cat) and the boy cat shredded a huge area of carpet trying to tunnel under the door, or something.

    Luckily we only have female cats, but the one is especially persistent in following me and meowing and chirping and climbing on me and just go away cat I am petting you and that is it

    Okay, so it is just words that are messing you/me up then.

    You can accept that a creature knows how to do some things without being trained on how to do them, but you do not want to call it memory, even though these rote responses (like the fucking crazy dances the birds of paradise do) require some level of brain activity to recall them, even if its not from a conscious place.

    No, we do not want to call it memory because it is due to something that is entirely unlike memory, simple as that

    also you seem to be implying that you think inheritance of acquired characteristics (look up lamarck) is a thing

    I am in no way defending Assassin's creed's level that they took it, and I sure as shit am not defending Lamarck-style genetics in any way whatsoever.

    I am just saying that there are some things, NOT related to parent but perhaps species or regional evolution over a very VERY long time that lend themselves to pre-aquired, NON-physical inheritance of ability. Some of which can be hauntingly complex (again, see birds of paradise). These things are recalled by the performer of them as they are needed.

    This is not what is happening in Assbro at all, but it is fascinating, and I am sure was part of the cornerstone that they used to craft their plot about aliens and the garden of eden and lolconspiracy.

    yeah I'm not talking about asscreed

    also there's quite a few posts up there for example, birds of paradise learn that stuff

    and, no, I don't think there's no such thing as pre-acquired non-physical inheritance of an ability I'm pretty sure that's impossible

    no way man.

    i don't care how many of your ancestors were awesome at throwing a rock at a rabbit and having dinner. You're not just going to "remember" how to do it because it has been done for countless generation.

    Now on the other hand could you be compelled to hurl a rock at a rabbit when you see both a rock and a rabbit as a result of the action playing such an important role in so many bodies?

    its because the words are intrinsically important syndalis.

    instincts are NOT memories, and genetic memory ala ass creed is a silly idea that is demonstrably false

    and the modern day dude being an awesome assassin because his parents were is dangerously lamarck

    but it is a game so whatever

    oh sure arch

    lamarck is your best bud

    he is gonna stretch your tallness genes out because you spend so much time on your tippie-toes

    by the way I don't think asscreed actually does all lamarck - desmond isn't a natural assassin

    they just use the "genetic memory is actually all your ancestors' memories ever, stored in your genes. Alright? This is silly, but we're gonna use it" thing

    but when you relive your memories you learn that stuff

    Also today I had my annual performance review and was put in the highest possible banding. It needs to be approved by a Director because in theory nobody should be getting that. Feeling pretty good about that.

    It's probably bad that my first thought about it was that the performance review bandings are the main consideration when deciding where the redundancy axe will fall, so this means I'm pretty much safe if the worst happens (although we have been repeatedly assured that it won't and we seem to have weathered the rough patch where huge groups of people were let go).
