physics, some things *can* be simplified while being understood
and "used", while some can *not* be made simple without distorting
That's why in my practice I tend to assess the degree of complexity
first, so that I get an idea on whether simplification is feasible
or a distortion.
When it comes to CoPs, I tend not to simplify because I strongly
feel they are more a matter of human nature (volatile, variable,
unpredictable) than of determinism (social, biological or

Thanks for the clarification re CMC.
