Hi Brian,

If Electroreception had survival value, it would be retained.
But I understand your thinking regarding Tesla's powers; he was
only an example of idiosyncratic thinking styles.

Maybe, but we're trying to expand that view into the past. This
could have happened many times over one hundred million years

You know there wouldn't be a record. There have been so many
changes to the world since then that we would never notice their

Look at the progress we've made in the last ten thousand years,
or last one hundred.

Once the idea is there, the solution isn't far behind, or what

I think you should assume that the folks in charge knew what was
up and who they were dealing with, and how the world would react
if the knowledge were revealed.
