Can you conceive of a method by which the information that one species needs
to be in symbiosis with another species might be transmitted to the othe
species, so that this orchestration may take place? How would a >species<
transmit information? Do all species transmit this kind of information? If
not, what determines which species transmits? If you're going to start up a
theory like this, these are some of the questions you will have to answer.
