Re: Transmission, Inheritance, Emulation 18

Hi Ellis - I hope you didn't read that as questioning your credentials. I was talking about the perspective the book was written from (without having read it yet - just from reading Peter's review).

An aside on the actual word outliers from today's International Herald Tribune:

"The executives of the other companies asserted Tuesday that they believed BP was an outlier, cutting corners to save time and money in ways that they would not tolerate."

So it can have negative connotations!

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
