not really. that is just one sample. the 'drive' could have been
transmitted from some other place and actualized through your wife; a
colleague, television, other media. possibly indicating that the
specific drive is resident and subsequently activated or that the
drive has a potential for complete human construction (psychologic
actualization). it is probable that is drive is less explicit.
ultimately, it may depend on the amount of aggregate glucose in the
environment. or possibly, the amount of energy in the environment.
or possibly the ratio of Carbon to Nitrogen atoms in the specific
envrionment. a massive dependence.
