The whole problem I have with statistical models is that they don't typically represent the modelling variations that could be and would need to be encoded into the ideas that are being represented. For example a Bayesian Network does imply that a resulting evaluation would subsequently be encoded into the network evaluation process, but only in a limited manner. It doesn't for example show how an idea could change the model, even though that would be easy to imagine. Jim Bromer On Thu, Aug 12, 2010 at 12:40 AM, John G.
