Ever met someone and known how they would think in general given a few specific examples of their thoughts? Given the massive number of variables underlying 'psychology', do a few stable psychotypes emerge out of the chaos? Can we look at these attractors as self reproducing, self reinforcing, co-evolving entities in a psycological ecosystem? Does the 'systematic metaphor' make sense in this case? For example can we look at a well armoured beatle - and see its analogue in certain human psycotypes? Are cultures ecosystems? Does it make any sense to ask these questions? Ta, Dan.
