From you link:

Quote
Frank Lloyd Wright adopted and professed the same principle in a slightly different formβ€”perhaps because shaking off the old styles gave them more freedom and latitude.
I've toured a few of Wright's buildings and studied him some in collage, and while I admire the practical philosophy of form following function, I really can't see it in Wright's designs.  It's not like they defy the philosophy over all.  They are just buildings that are more or less practical.  I think today's buildings are actually more practical.  And Wright does deviate by adorning his architecture with attractive, but totally unnecessary foo fah at times.  What he did well was design buildings with his metaphorical visual signature.  You can spot one of his buildings from a block away, and I'm sure the owners will point out that it's a Frank Lloyd Wright design in case you didn't notice.

Why can't I get away with selectively breeding humans?

You need a population totally under your control.  It's awkward.

Oh well then, maybe he wants to be a naked mole rat or meerkat or some type of cichlid...

And sooner or later they get so selective they won't breed with you.

Well, until they become "not you" it's good.  They one day it isn't.

So that's why I couldn't get a date in high school or college β€” I'm the wrong species!  XD

Male youths think mistakenly that they are entitled to dates, particularly with pretty girls.  This is part of toxic teen/college culture.  Of course there is a corresponding female version ;-)

Well, yeah, if you don't show the right feathers, or fluttery wing-waves, or swan-neck bend, or club membership, or dance moves, or the right car, you are not going to be chosen.

Not to mention having been socially conditioned to assume I was straight.  And a reasonably devout Catholic.  So I didn't pursue dates with girls with any sort of enthusiasm, and I couldn't conceive of pursuing a date with a guy because one just "didn't".  And being 1-2 years younger than everyone else in my class didn't help β€” I graduated at 16.

Yes, evolution is complicated, being a diachronic process, not a synchronic one.  Particularly when humans are doing the modifying, not random mutations.  Use legacy seeds when you can.  Or enjoy cancer.

"Diachronic"?  I'm impressed!  You amaze me sometimes. That's why I'm still reading your posts.  Not that you should do that deliberately, but I love seeing words I know sometimes that I don't think to use.

But did you understand ... that there is more than one way to do anything, and a smart person doesn't rule any method out, but uses whichever applies at any given time.  Without diachrony there is no cause-effect, no history.  But synchrony is useful sometimes.
