A Preliminary Investigation into
An Evolutionary Boundary

In these simulations, two things influence competitiveness: immediate survivability (IS)
baggage. The difference between these two principles are:

   1) The "IS" of a group can be either positive or negative depending on the
        IS of the overall competition.
Baggage is never positive until the PAES
        level reaches the point of producing the
target organism.  Before that
        time and after the baggage level reaches three points, baggage is negative.

   1) Each IS point of difference results in a 1% change in population while each
baggage point (after the first two points) results in a .01% decrease.

   2) "IS" is general competitiveness while
baggage is specific to the efficiency
        of cellular processes due to a structure that has no immediate benefit.
