About Intended Evolution:
The theory of Intended Evolution (and Intended Evolution Fitness) was formulated by Dr. Dongxun Zhang over 20 years ago and as put forward in other sections on this site does not refute Darwin's "natural selection" but rather is a larger picture and includes the "input" to the selection process. It is not unlike, but more wide ranging and with clarification, Lamarck's ideas. The links of interest section gives you a flavor for support we've found in biological and evolutionary thinking. The use of "theory" is meant in general terms in that there is no peer reviewed paper(s), but rather a pulling together of generally accepted biological information in support of the underlying ideas. The book is very readable, although dense, and wide ranging in the fields of science it addresses to explain the ideas.
Generally speaking, one premise is that all living organisms, down to single cells (and possibly pre-cell life, but this is not included) act intelligently and intentionally as part of what life does. This includes everything even a cell does as its regular course of being alive- it's perception and intentional interactions ("experience") of the external environment and intentional internal changes it makes based on those "experiences"- to benefit itself. This includes saving information information about those experiences in its DNA and making other internal changes when possible and deemed beneficial going forward. The book meant to clarify questions about "why" supporting things are observed in science by putting forward a framework that makes sense of things who's mechanism, or "how" has already been written about.
