The analog to this, regarding the single fixed constraint governing sport/military tactical possibilities, are th
Contrary to public misconception, we do not gain understanding knowledge by imitation.
The reality is that “All knowledge is conjectural, and comes from within at first”- David Deutsch
What this signifies, though non-intuitively at first and in refutation of the fallacy of Empiricist claims, is that we do not gain or create knowledge by way of observing, bearing witness, watching, listening, being mentored, or in any other way explicit derivation. Imitation, su
