I watched a documentary on animals, and tere was a piece on a cuckoo bird. When it is hatched, it immediately throws all the other eggs in the nest out, so that it is the one that gets all the food. Also, cows and horses and the like all know how to walk instictively. How is this possible? How can a animal be born with an idea in it's head. And since this is possible, why can't we program "knowledge" into newborn babies, so that they already know things before they are even born? I hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance
