Antes que la hora llegue, debes pasar tus genes. 251 días. El curso lógico de acción es determinar la forma más efectiva para sobrevivir y reproducirse, y practicar esto hasta que se convierta en una respuesta mecánica. y Las Artes Marciales consisten en unas rutinas practicadas que, una vez internalizadas, mejoran tus oportunidades de supervivencia. Las Artes Venusianas consisten en una serie de rutinas practicadas que, una vez internalizadas, mejoran tus oportunidades de reproducción. y La Homeostasis Social Dinámica es el equilibrio entre el deseo de protegernos nosotros mismos de los otros y el deseo de alinearnos con otros.
