Here is some hypothetical input:
- I have a set of eggs.
- I hatch these eggs and get chicken from them. Say, 100 hen that can lay eggs.
- I have a hypothetical technology to track some parameters of each hen during their life - one of them is the moment a hen lays an egg.
- I collect the data and find out which hen laid the largest amount of eggs during her productive period. I mark this one as the most productive.
- I collect the eggs from the most productive hen in the generation.
- GOTO 1.
Now, if I repeat this loop of death and life, say for 20 generations, hatching only eggs from the most productive hen, will it make next generations more productive and with each iteration or is it an oversimplified picture I have?
By performing this mental experiment I want to figure out if I can use it as a clear predictable factor influencing productivity of future generations.
