  1. This delightful piece showcases Trivers ideas current thinking and under appreciated personality better than anything I have ever seen.

    I think I can count myself as amongst his long term companions and this is the flower of Rastaman Trivers pollinating the minds of the curious to be informed with the sense of humor the permeates his being.

    Also recognition should by given to Kay Osborne the television producer in Jamaica who put this together.

    The footage of the baby sequencially throwing himself on the floor is ingest the best comedy ever filmed.

    It’s funny exactly for the same reason Trivers’ work resonates in the psyche.

    Truth maybe elusive by we recognize it when we see it.

    Great, great presentsion

    Texting comments by phone sacrafices accuracy for enthusiasm.

    Should read :
    “sense if humor that permeates ….. ”

    ” on the floor is just the best Comedy ever filmed…..”
