Here is my theory, thanks for waiting. Any comments and suggestions are completly welcome. Remember I may not have acess to information that you have so please give sources. Thank You.

The Laws of Kind Adaptation: The Creation of Sub Kinds and the explanation of.
A theory by Aaron Viviano

The theory of the creation of sub kinds is split into 5 Laws:

1. The Law of Genetic Barriers:
The amount of genetic flexibility allowed for with in a DNA molecule may never exceed the Genetic Barrier of Adaptation in a given Kind, unless the law of mutation takes effect.

2. The Law of Genetic Specialization:
A Sub-Kind may continue to diverge from the original Kind as long as it never reaches the Kind’s Genetic Barrier, unless the law of mutation takes effect.

3. The Law of Mutation:
A Sub Kind can mutate, but will never mutate into a new Kind only into a new Sub Kind. This Sub Kind might change the position of the Genetic Barrier, with in it’s Sub Kind, however it will never remove the Genetic Barrier and thus never be a new kind.

4. The Law of Changing Barriers:
A change in the position of the genetic barrier may increase the chance of disease and will likely limit further Sub Kind adaptation.

5. The law of Kind Reproduction:
The greater genetic variance there is between a Sub Kind and the Original Kind or other a different Sub Kind the harder it will be for the two to create a new member of that Kind.

Sample Kind: Genetic Barrier A1 B1-2 C1-3 D1-4
Kind: A1 B1 C2 D4
Sub Kind 1: A1 B2 C2 D4
Sub Kind 2: A1 B1 C3 D1
Sub Kind 3: A1 B2 C1 D4

Characteristics are letters.
Variations within Characteristics are numbers.
The Genetic Barrier is the Letters. It’s position is the range in numbers.

Using this sample Kind we can show how the 5 laws work. First is the Law of Genetic Barriers. The Genetic Barrier in this Kind is A1 B1-2 C1-3 D1-4. Each of the letters is a characteristic and in this example the Kind has 4 of them. The first characteristic, A, has only one variation in it, in nature one could look at this as something a kin to a horn always forming in a given spot at a certain age. The second characteristic, B, has two variations in it. The third, C, has 3 and the fourth, D, has 4. Now the Original Kind’s DNA contains A1 B1 C2 D4 and the DNA it self starts of with the Genetic Barrier previously described. Which would mean characteristic A has the 1st variation of 1, B has the 1st variation of 2, C has the 2nd variation of 3 and D has the 4th variation of 4.

Now that you understand what the sample means let’s go on to the important part, how it works. Now starting with the original Kind, the one just called Kind, we will start the example. Long ago and far far away… err… sorry. Ehem. A couple thousand years ago there existed Kind. These Kind were survivors after the flood and had many children. As these children spread all over the earth using various land bridges to move between continents, such as North and South America, from Mt. Ararat. After a few hundred years the Ice Caps from the Ice Age were fully melted and the land bridges disappeared beneath the waves. This left the Kind in Asia, Sub Kind 1 (SK1)in Australia, Sub Kind 2 (SK2) in North America, and Sub Kind 3 (SK3) in Africa. Now the original Kind thrived in Asia’s mountains and stayed the same as it is today. However Sub Kind 1, A1 B2 C2 D4, wasn’t faring to well in the deserts of Australia so after about a thousand years Sub Kind 1’s members began to use genes that had previously been unused switching them from a C3 to a C2. Eventually the whole of Sub Kind 1 was like this and none of the original Kind was left in Australia.

Now this also happened with Sub Kind 2 (SK2), A1 B1 C3 D1, except to was the D4 that dramatically changed into a D1. This dramatic variation shift eventually left Sub SK2 unable to reproduce with another members of the Kind Family. This is due to the Genetic difference with in the sub kind compared to the others and, while never “evolving” any new DNA information, the shift (using different DNA that was always available and using with and/or ignoring old DNA) in DNA caused it to be unable to reproduce with other the other Kinds in the Kind family.

Similar things happened with SK3 ( A1 B2 C1 D4 ), but it is still able to reproduce just fine with SK1 and K. However 2000 years into SK3’s existence a mutation occurs that changes the Genetic Barrier to change position from what it was previously. This new Sub Kind called Sub Kind 4, (creative no? SK4) Genetic Barrier is now A1 B1-2 C3-4 D1-4 (compared to the old one A1 B1-2 C1-3 D1-4). While a new range has been created the potential DNA that was available for adaptation has been cut by 1/3. This effectively reduces the chance for survival if the climate or region changes dramatically.

While the theory of Evolution dictates that this change is a slow process, the Kind theory states that this can happen with in a short amount of time 1000-4000 years. This is dependent on the rate of reproduction, thus simple creatures such as bacteria the time may happen extremely quickly, creating New sub kinds at astounding rates. Eventually a sub kind will have mutated to far and becomes a locked kind. This locked kind, such as fruit flies, has only one variation within the ranges. Any further mutation will never be useful to the species.

A note of importance is not to confuse the letter characteristics with variations within a genetic barrier. Most humans have basically the same genetic Barrier except for mutations or diseases. Thus any number of personal variations on the Genetic Barrier occur, such as one nose is bigger than the other or a different shape, this does not affect the Barrier in the lest.

Also one final note. The smaller the amount of genetic information the easier it is to mutate with out any side effects. Namely Bacteria.

I hope you like my “theory” (yes I suppose it is just an idea). I’ll joyfully be waiting for your responses when I get back.
