The Flunkey (Alesimia lapsus) is a relatively small gliding monkey inhabiting the rainforests of Earth about 50 million years forward in the future. This marmoset-sized creature has thus developed a patagia between its front paws, similar to those of present day’s flying squirrels, that gives it the ability to manage to glide through treetops.

The development of the flying monkeys can draw explanation through the concept of genetic drift. The genetic drift also referred to genetic sampling error or the Sewall Wright effect. The concept is a basic change in the genetic pool of small the population of a particular species that takes place strictly by chance. In the presently existing monkeys, the Genetic drift can influence change that can result in original genetic traits being lost from the group. In the process, the development can become widespread in a population without any respect to the survival or the reproductive value of all the alleles involved. A somehow random statistical result, the genetic drift, can occur in small, isolated populations whereby the gene pool is small for the extent that chance events can change its entire makeup substantially. On the other hand, in larger populations, a particular allele that is carried by many individuals can be almost transmitted by some of them unless there exists biological unsuitability.

The future development of flying monkeys can occur through what we might call the hypothesis generation. A part of the early scientific explanation is gradually first lining up the facts that need some explaining as well as trying to arrange them in a somehow coherent manner. Thus, this is not a complete scientific account as yet. However, the argument is controversial even among most evolutionary biologists. There is a notion that point to brain processes that can be examined to find the genetic as well as developmental pathways that can be used in explaining how flunkies undergo development. The pathway is under possible selective control leading to the evolution. The process is all part of evolution. The positivist view that evolution is just hypothesis testing or theory falsification will from now be considered as reflective of the complexity of flunkies evolution.

On the other hand, the genetic system of all life can be said to be totally coded. A perfect example of such a code is the Morse code sounds, that include, ‘dot dot dot dash.’ The code look, sound or sometimes seem nothing like the letter ‘V’ for which they represent or code. The genetic system is also a primary pointer of the manner in which flunkies will exist in the future. Many of the present generation know that this sequence of sounds that is represented b a ‘V’ but do not have a clue towards its meaning. The same case applies to the data on the DNA of monkeys. Though the data that can be found on the strands of DNA (the chromosomes) in monkeys carry the information for all the amino acids as well as proteins that are to form, the primary data on the DNA are always held as assorted groupings of the four different nucleic acids,. The monkey Nucleic acids always have zero physical resemblance to amino acids or the proteins. This information is totally coded.

In nature, the lack of similarity between the codes as well as the final product ensures that there exists no logical feedback from the protein or amino acid across to DNA. In the case of evolution of flunkies, the information flow is one way: from the DNA to the amino acid to the proteins. New mutant variations of these proteins only can arise through mutations at the DNA without physical hint of the final protein product.
