600 Pound E. Coli

Hi Martin,

Rick Marken (950626.0900) --

I was cut off from the net this weekend so I was unable to post the following
analysis in a timely manner. But, as you will see, I have concluded that the
results of the original E. coli experiment are as clear a rejection of
reinforcement theory as you are likely to find. The fact that reinforcement
theorists don't see this as a rejection of their model shows that there is
nothing -- nothing at all -- that will convince reinforcement theorists that
their model of behavior is wrong.
