Let me give a "baseline genetics" to the Iceland study where
inbreeding has a advantage.

--- quoting from Wikipedia on inbreeding ---

Some inbreeding may enhance fertility rate
A recent study in Iceland by the deCODE genetics company, published by
the journal Science, found that third cousins produced more children
and grandchildren, suggesting that "in spite of the fact that bringing
together two alleles of a recessive trait may be bad, there is clearly
some biological wisdom in the union of relatively closely related
people".[40] For hundreds of years, inbreeding was historically
unavoidable in Iceland due to its then tiny and isolated population.
--- end quoting ---

In animals, there are two mechanisms involved in genetics --- mitosis
and meiosis.

The theory I am proffering says that the mutation rate is highest in a
species when inbreeding occurs.

So how can we check to see if that theory is true or false.

Well, we need a baseline, and the Iceland study that 3rd cousins are
the most fertile reproduction is that baseline.

Now I need something in physics to be a analog of reproduction for
biology. So as to step through the concepts and theory more easily. I
need a model of physics to bypass much of the complexity of biology to
get at the heart of the theory, to see the mechanism in play.

In Physics, atoms are everything of physics and the last description
of atoms of quantum numbers N, L, m_L and m_ s is the m_ s, the
quantum spin. The last concept of physics and the most simple concept
of those four is m_s, the spin, whether up or down.
And in biology, we can replace spin with the concept of right handed
glove or left handed glove. Mind you, I am doing this as to get to the
heart of biology reproduction in that inbreeding increases mutation

Now in Genetic Recombination, of putting together the DNA to form a
offspring, the recombination is the fitting together of a pair, one
right handed and one left handed.

The Iceland study indicates that meiosis is controlled by the very
genes that meiosis assembles and it is found that the highest or best
fitting together of father genes with mother genes is 3rd cousin for
the highest rate of reproduction. A zone of reproduction that we would
clearly frown upon since it is inbreeding.

Now I will continue this, but I see my conclusions already, although
the path to those conclusions are somewhat vague at this moment.

The idea is that there is a baseline to where mitosis and meiosis are
at their peak-- 3rd cousins, and any more inbreeding spells a higher
mutation rate. And in the opposite direction of going away from 3rd
cousin reproduction, the diversity is larger and the mutation rate
decreases until it reaches a leveling out.

Now the reason I bring in gloves, right and left, is that during
mitosis and meiosis, to form a bond we can consider a right and left
form that bond. But there are gloves in which the glove fits either
right or left, and we can take a glove that is meant for right but
wear it on the left hand (not as well, but it will do) and take that
example of an analogy to what a mutation is. So that when I wear a
right hand glove on my left hand-- it is a mutation.

So this glove analogy is what I am going to use to breeze by, or
breeze past all the complexity of biology and show that there must be
a Baseline for reproduction and beyond that baseline is higher
mutations and below the baseline is less mutations.
