Re: EpDis: Dust To Dust

I don't know, but as a science, why wouldn't the same apply to animals? Is a mule more "evolved" than a horse or a donkey? It can't even reproduce, if I remember correctly.

Although, it's possible the Triluminary transformation also made something else happen, that was passed on. Perhaps the transformation made them (Valen and Delen) more genetically compatible than a horse and mule. Did the homosapien race evolve by cross-mating with Neanderthals? Would that make them more evolutionarily advanced? I guess so.

So, hmm, the question I suppose is: can David have children? Well, Valen certainly did, and his offspring had more offspring.

So, interesting thought. I've never heard that theory/perspective on the episode before.
