Abstract: Two evolutionary lineages: Machiavellian and Bohrian intelligenceMutation and natural selection are the two most basic processes of evolution,yet the study of their interplay remains a challenge for theoretical andempirical research. Darwinian evolution favors genotypes with high replicationrates, a process called survival of the fittest representing lineage of theMachiavellian inteligence. According to quasi-species theory, selection favorsthe cloud of genotypes, interconnected by mutation, whose average replicationrate is highest: mutation acts as a selective agent to shape the entire genomeso that is robust with respect to mutation. Thus survival of the flattest andinventivest representing lineage of the Bohrian intelligence at high mutationrates. Quasi-species theory predicts that, under appropriate conditions (highmutation pressure), such a mutation can be fixed in an evolving population,despite its lower replication rate.
