      Very interesting article SS, thanks for sharing it. Has anyone read The Black swan? I browsed through it briefly at a book store last year and it seemed very interesting but forgot about it completely after that.

          Great post SS. That&#39;s got a 2010 copyright on it and it&#39;s identified as a "draft version." I presume it&#39;s from a forthcoming work? If so, do you have its title and expected release date?

            Geoff I got the link from here: http://bit.ly/4RbpUU. I would also like to know more about the final version and it&#39;s actual publication.

              Very interesting--I like the idea that we, as organisms, actually need randomness and variability. Seems we have much to unlearn from the last few decades of CW.

                      Great article! Considering that the current model has us evolving to adapt to change itself, it is not surprising that we thrive on change rather than stability.

                          Well thanks FF. The credit belongs to Chris for posting it in his blog though (http://conditioningresearch.blogspot.com/), I&#39;m sure he would appreciate MDAers paying him a visit in return
