Re: Epigenetic influences on the socioaffective nature of evolved behaviors
- I see this as much more the sort of question your model could be helpful
in answering. You'reu offering a feedback look that could explain how
epigenetic /stress influences could sometimes lead to dna changes. The
key predictive potential in your model is actually by pursuing the sort
of questions I mentioned, because this would allow you to eventually
predict what extent such influences can be causally directed, and what
amount of randomness there is.
And no coincidence good predictions could come from a process of 'making
explicit' ....putting things into a strong form. That's always the
