keiths: To reconstruct an objective nested hierarchy, you need both traits that are stable and traits that are changing.
Joe: Hey, that is what I said- the traits have to be immutable (stable) and additive (changing). I guess I know more about these things than what has been said about me.
LOL. Additive in a mathematical context means compatible with the operation of addition. (See additive function or additive group.) It has nothing to do with being subject to change.
Yes oleg- additive means in addition to, which is the way I have always used it. Also if you add something to something else then you have changed it, duh.
Chromosomes. are. all. connected. It is one long polymer. Called the DNA. - oleg t
