No, but even we think kakapos and pandas are outliers.

Spouse: "Does Amenta not have nukes because greens had enough caste solidarity not to tell blues about them?"

Me: "...it does now."

It's really not remarkably fast evolution. Selective breeding for intelligence would totally get you more intelligence in humans over the course of eight-ten generations.

Eight to ten generations? People estimate it would take that long to get terraforming?

ETA: I wasn’t caught up on Incredible Things, and now I’m confused that Telkam says there have already been eight generations. I thought universal population control only started around the time of the Oakh empire expansion, and Anitam’s in particular did not meet their standards. Amentans live a long time, but not so long that eight generations could pass while Governor Avalor was alive.

Plus inter-caste marriages (and other child-conceiving relationships) make eugenics harder; even something with better selection criteria than an auction wouldn’t aim for intelligent greys instead of physically active ones, and I bet every green has some grey in them in the last few generations.

Although he also said most traits are 70% heritable, which does sound high for humans.

Follow-up question: why aren’t there more twins and triplets?

ETA 2: Human heritability seems to average about 50%: http://www.nature.com/ng/journal/v47/n7 ... .3285.html

Probably best to start with "like we're made of starlight", actually, assuming a non-glowfic background: https://glowfic.com/posts/684

You will probably still be at least a little bit confused if you haven't read the Silmaril threads, but that thread was iirc the first time Amenta appeared, so it at least functions as a decent introduction to that even if the elf side will be inadequately explained.

(Glowfic tends very high-context, and you are coming into the Amenta thing rather late. Apologies.)

Once you've read that, the next one to read is "in color": https://glowfic.com/posts/803 which doesn't follow on directly but is higher-context and assumes more background knowledge.
