scientists say about teem theory
of science tells us that
scientific theories are usually met with initial resistance from the
scientific community. This is especially so when the proponent of
that theory comes from outside the field or is an autodidact (self
taught) like me.
It doesn't help if the theory challenges what academics have been
espousing and teaching all their lives. Normally it takes the next
generation of scientists to evaluate the theory objectively.
In the case of teem theory, the response so far from scientists has
been what I'd call, "cautiously favourable." I think this is mainly
because it's widely believed
in the biological community that gaps do remain in
the NeoDarwinian paradigm, especially as it relates to the evolution
of complex, environment-specifics behaviours.
In any case, you can read short sound bites or else

scientists create a new teem in the laboratory
A reader recently sent me a link to a paper in an American journal with the subject line, "Here's your proof."
The journal was The American Naturalist (March
2010 issue) and it featured a remarkable paper by Professor Jonathan Storm of the University of South
Carolina Upstate and Professor Steven Lima of Indiana State
University. They reported that crickets traumatized by predatory wolf spiders passed their newly acquired fears to their offspring.
researchers blunted the fangs of wolf spiders with wax then put them in
an enclosure with pregnant crickets. The spiders hunted and attacked
the crickets but could not kill them. When the traumatized crickets
their offspring were 113% more likely to try to evade wolf spiders than
control crickets that had not been exposed. As a result they had higher
The researchers said that 'forewarned'
crickets were also more likely to freeze when they encountered
spider silk or feces, which also helped them avoid detection.
Professors Storm and Lima reported, “Transfer
of information from mother to offspring about predation risk, in
the absence of any parental care, may be more common than one might
The researchers said they could not explain how the intergenerational transfer of environmental information
occurred, but my from perspective, this is undoubtedly a simple
anti-predator teem created by the teemosis evolutionary process.
my knowledge, this is the first teem to be created in the
laboratory. It provides the strongest evidence yet for the existence of
the teemosis process. It additionally demonstrates how
teems are adaptive. The offspring had learned to escape and evade a
predator they had never actually seen. Very exciting.
A scientific theory is like a key. If
it's correct, it can unlock all sorts of other doors. Last year, I used
teem theory to examine the mystery of human evolution - how, why, when
and where we became human.
By analysing innate behaviours and instincts in modern humans (what we
affectionately call 'human nature') and analysing the teems that
them, I came to the conclusion that our Palaeolithic ancestors had been
hunted, cannibalized and raped by Eurasian Neanderthals in the Middle
East for over 50,000 years.
My publisher asked me to write a popular science book about it, which I
did. It's called 'Them and Us; how
Neanderthal predation created modern humans' and it's available
as a paperback and Ebook.

debt is undoubtedly to Charles Darwin, there are lots of other
people I need to personally thank for offering to read material,
providing invaluable feedback, giving sound advice and generally
helping to test and validate the theory.
