Epigenetics theories of Larmarck applied to AI and predictive behaviour in humans. Evolution does not serve individuals, but genes propagation (Dawkins ‘selfish genes’).

Use personal data as DNA that is transfered from individual to individual in a world where individuals are just the ‘interfaces’ for genes to learn and spread across the world.

In other words: genes work like memes that ‘use’ people to propagate themselves. This would make Evolution a form of intelligence which is about getting our genes to the next generation. It has no investment in our happiness, or even in the long term survival of our species.

Its unclear how all this relates to consciousness: as a by-product or as a desired result?.
