What I said was it's a repair of the genes, as a whole. The resulting organism avoids the problems associated with simple instinct, while keeping the benefits. But I suppose you could call that a repair of the instinct as well, if you wanted. By reproducing more successfully than the genes that don't. You may have at some point encountered the term "natural selection?" Only in situations where the selfish ends of the gene are served by sensible cooperation (whatever you consider that to be). In other settings the description would be rather brutal.
