Example text

At any given moment through the course of evolution, the set of all CET values generated during an individual’s development (called “tree of CET values”, abbreviated TCV) can be divided into i) CET values that activate an instruction during development and ii) CET values that do not activate any instruction during development. In the same way the individual’s Genome is composed by i) instructions that become active during development and ii) instructions that do not become active during development.

E. the sets of age steps) before and after fitness evaluation can be thought to correspond to the biological periods of development (say, until 25 years of age in humans -the average age of reproduction) and ageing (from 25 years of age onwards); by analogy, such periods will be called “artificial development” and “artificial ageing” respectively. As pointed out several times, at the end of an individual’s development many junk CET values are present, as well as many junk instructions; such stock of junk represents a reservoir of events that can potentially be triggered after the moment of fitness evaluation, in the period that we called artificial ageing.

On the other hand, we notice how the border between TCV-A and TCV-J (GEN-A and GEN-J) is permeable (elements can move between the two sets) and the average size of TCV-A (GEN-A) is proportional to the size of TCV-J (GEN-J). These considerations bring us to deducting, in the epigenetic tracking “world”, a direct link between the evolvability of a species and its susceptibility to ageing, being both aspects mediated by the presence of a big stock of junk. e. e. , 1995), could hint to the existence of a similar link also in real biological systems.
