    Intelligence is not in number of genes. After all, you have "smart" genes and you have "dumb" genes. Clobbering more pieces of junk genes does not make it better.

    Imagine a computer... a very very old computer, perhaps a commodore 64. Does it compare to one of our modern netbook? Or even a handheld computer? No. What if we stick 10 commodores together into a system. How does that compare? Still no comparison. Well what about 100? how about 1000? Does that compare?

    No, it does not. The processing speed of individual units is much much slower than that of a netbook. Also the larger the network is, the more problems it has with utilizing every single unit effectively.

    Therefore having 100X the components does not make a smarter computer. So more genes in a rice plant does not make them smarter than us.
    I was talking to a rice plant the other day and she told me she has gone right off the literal minded.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Who would have guessed?

    *does not compute*

    When you invent phrases like this that do not convey any meaning in the way language is used today, you should really provide a key for us or something like that

    Yes. All GMOs require a bacteria/virus to break down it's walls in order to allow the scientist to alter it's genes.
