i wonder if i know who that is.  trinidad?  'northeast groovers'.  maybe not.
 
but thats excellent.  
 
glowbells and groundwetter.  i do wonder about the colors of the quarks.
 
i'm also down with that mcarthur broken stick argument (if i can recall---he applied it to species diversity, and the random breaking of a stick i think leads to a lognormal distribution;  hubbel and mckane seem to be bringing back the old gaussian model (the whole world is normal) with their 'neutral theory of biodiversity', which may be somewhat correct (often all these models overlap in predicting empirical data---the same goes for 'income distributuion', where you can have normal, lognormal, power, and so on approximations all of which fit some or most of the data). i view that as reactionary.  (ie the fundamental theory is that twhile the world may be nonlinear, a high degree polynomial, or even worse, you can do a taylor's series expansion and just take the first two terms.  the good thing is its 'tractable'. and it fits in with the ethos of publish or perish.  the power laws seem to have forced some to give up pushing against that wall and
 instead to retreat to the flatlands.  (or yiou go into computer graphics and simulate solutions.  'i'm impressed by what your computer knows, but what do you know?"---maybe julian schwinger or one of those kinds.)
 
'random walks over rugged landscapes' (s kauffman/ sewell wright/ neil barton) kinduh view.  (barton had a recent review where he pointed out one his old results (in an appendix to a paper i studied alot) had been redicscovered several times in the last 10 or 15 years; maybe its diascovered almost everyday on arxiv.  i always wondered what became of his co-author who was based in iran, both had physics degrees but did population genetics.).   (i even took a shortcut across my local stream yesterday and ended up swimming and had to cancel my outing.) 
 
bateson married margaret mead.  we should maybe stick with facts.

always thot Higgs bosons beat out glueballs at least as far as charm but i 
guess the mass value says no. howevr you can allus chk out MacArthur 
broken stick but mebe too patchy...
  heard germans putting radeowaste into mineshaft or geselleshaft 
(Tonnies wd know). either way seeps back into the growndwetter but in 
the 2nd case via socially cohesive clay dewposits.
  Wait, more or less long, light and heat come back, all grows white and 
hot together, ground, wall, vault, bodies, say twenty seconds, all the 
greys, till the initial level is reached whence the fall began. 
  More or less long, for there may intervene, experience shows, between 
end of fall and beginning of rise, pauses of varying length, from the 
fraction of the second to what would have seemed, in other times, other 
places, an eternity.
  But annealing simu;ated & quantum cant find the glowbell optimum in 
case you gt stuck on a ruff landscape...
