Ideas are more important than genes

“In the terms of evolution as you like to think of it, ideas are more important than genes, for we are again dealing with more than the surfaces of events.  We are dealing with more than some physical mechanics of being.  For one thing, the genes themselves are conscious, though in different terms than yours.  Your cultures – your civilizations – obviously affect the well-being of your species, and those cultures are formed by your ideas, and forged through the use of your imaginations and your intellects.”
(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment Vol 2Session 919)
