When it comes to the tusk thing, how lack of tusks makes elephants live longer, but also gives them new types of problems, I am reminded of what Bergson wrote one time, about how evolution does not mean progress, just adaptation, and that it is naïve to immediately regard a new species as superior than the previous.
I guess it makes sense, the elephants lacking the right genes are the ones reproducing…so, no more tusks…But I’m not sure that exactly qualifies as “evolving”…
…Maybe it does…but it seems more like the gene void elephants are simply becoming a larger part of the population.
