ADAPTATION MECHANISM

founded by Jean Piaget, a process of scientific adaptation via the interaction between the assimilation of reports from life experience and the alteration of the living body to take on new reports and incorporate them into it's cognitive system.

ADAPTATION MECHANISM: "Adaptation mechanisms exist in all living beings on some level, one such lacking instance would be a dog's ability to digest chocolate- since chocolate is toxic to dogs, no one has introduced it, but it is postulated that slow introduction among the species would assist in developing yet another mechanism that evolves over time."
