This chapter presents important lessons on the major transitions in evolution. It illustrates that a systematic consideration of three subsystems opens the door to an extended view of the major transitions. It addresses how fraternal transitions may apply to neuronal replicators. It proposes that the recombination of neuronal replicators may be the underlying mechanism by which representations are formed and modified. This chapter suggests that an extension to the problem of competing and cooperating neuronal replicators may turn out to be rather spectacular.
