A New Theory of Evolution and Its Application for Multi-National Conglomerate Acquisitions

June 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

Okay so, I don't know if anyone else thought of this theory, but it is something I've always wondered about. It goes something like this; everything we eat has DNA in it, and often that DNA attaches itself to our DNA, or makes itself available to us after we eat it. Since human DNA is very robust, and the mitochondrial DNA extremely well bound, normally the attached junk DNA probably doesn't matter much, and what we eat doesn't really end up making much of a difference.

However, it might open the possibility for adaptation and evolution, just by the mere fact that it is there. Okay so, that's the way out theory, unproven, and perhaps baloney, although we don't know for sure if there isn't something more to it, nevertheless I'd like to take that theory however crazy it may be and consider its application for multinational conglomerate acquisitions. Now, you are probably saying;

"Lance, that's pretty esoteric, and even though on alternate days we might call you a creative genius, that's getting pretty far out there guy."

Yes okay, I understand your comments, but let me go ahead and explain this now that I've got your mind thinking anyway, as this is somewhat of an original thought, but I'd like to put with it some actual observation in our free-market, and in the business world. Now then, when a very large company eats up a smaller one, or buys its technologies, and rehires all of its staff, most likely that staff will be integrated into the corporate status quo. The startup that the large corporation may have bought or the smaller competitor and its employees will have to acquiesce into the new corporate culture. If not, most likely they will be let go.

Still, there is a chance that some of those employees from the little company now working for the big company will be doing something that works that will catch the attention of the executive staff of the larger company. In this case they could actually end up altering and allowing for adaptation and innovation in the larger system, perhaps one with 100,000 employees, even though they came from a small company with perhaps less than 100.

No, it's very difficult to turn around such a large ship, corporations work on slower timetables, and are not able to evolve quickly and adapt, but sometimes market forces make them adapt, and having some of that junk DNA, or a few employees from smaller companies who have always operated at the grassroots level may just be the junk DNA inside the larger cow that ate that grass. Are you beginning to see my point? Indeed I hope you will please consider all this, but only on a philosophical basis.
