EBB scholars, who know much much more about the poet than me, haven’t deciphered what has jumped out of the page at me because they don’t really know HKPP. This is a sleuthing quest for me, but it’s highly relevant to MT, because it is a mixture of tries to infer natural causation by combining circumstantial, informal evidence from the past with modern technology. In the full case of HKPP, several ion-channel genes are known, several of which look like causal for HKPP.
But much like so many characteristics, most cases do not express changes in these genes, phenotypes are variable highly, so that even the name (HKPP) masks difficulty. In this case, retro-sleuthing is not about evolutionary fitness, or long-term progression, but with direct first-person evidence even, causal inference is a significant challenge. Any conclusions about specific previous incidences, as with EBB’s case, are conjectural — and can stay so if modern hereditary methods identify the basis of most cases even. But even then, inferring fitness effects, and therefore the effects of evolution on the relevant genes, is problematic-squared: even the persistently ill EBB bore a kid.
