Most of the time, our genes have common interests with our "self".
We reproduce well if and only if our genes reproduce well.
In some cases, like in bees, the haploid bees can survive better if they help their queen reproduce.
In humans and other species, are there samples that give individuals "incentive" to help non family member to reproduce for the sake of their genes.
- No filial altruism
- No reciprocal altruism
So I need a sample between individual based evolution and gene base evolution.
For example, many genocide are done against the best and brightest. I wonder what sort of genes encode "kill the best and brightest" and how does that kind of gene survive well in the gene pool?
