Who is Melga Blank?
the other person
who discovered evolution
Melga Blank is an American academic, naturalist, self-evolutionary biologist, and biographer of The Mels. She came up with the concept of self-evolution—after meeting and studying The Mels. Blank's wild idea—that The Mels evolve through self-versions—was first published in a paper in 2014. That's a full 158 years after Darwin published the Origin of the Species. Blank hasn't yet developed Darwin-level fame, but her ideas help form the basis of how we study self-evolution today.
