My computer hasn't been behaving. In the process of writing my new Big Theory, I've lost the document four times. I'm not kidding.
It's okay, though - each time I write it, the thing gets shorter. The first time, it was more than twenty pages long (and unfinished). Now I've got it down to three. Of course, a lot of content was shaved off - the original essay included a scathing review of some misleading experiments, a section about simulating interplayer complexity, and a full game doc. Those will have to come some other time, I suppose.
Anyhow, I think this is an important theory, so I want you to read it and tell me what you think:
