Quoting from that link:
"Dawkins has been the most vocal advocate that selection acts not on individuals per se, but on genes. The theory of genic selection is often referred to as the selfish gene theory ..."

What I'm saying is also nothing new...that
genes are not entities but occurrances, and that the "selfish" part is just another metaphor for a chemical set of sorting protocols.

Things do "act on the individual" but until you measure the actual chemical and information inputs to a human individual
EVERYTHING you say about "fitting the environment" is RUBBISH. Two persons side by side can have a different environment and usually do.
