Hal--let me try being constructive

How would I introduce my model into McPhail et al.'s? I don't have
the computer skills, but I'll predict theoretically a simulation

Allow your pursuit space to be three-dimensional, with sixty-degree
vortices. Or more simply, it should work in two dimensions, even at
ninety degree vortices. Model as a stochastic probability function
an option to the pursuit you modeled from t-1 to t-2. The option at
the probability you set is to move as in the leg I depict in the open
triangle (which can graphically be transformed into two dimensions).
Map points at successive t's as you do now. At some critical point in
your probability variable, some critical, catalyzing setting, which I
expect to be below 50%, the points should crystallize as though
strangely attracted into an infinite regress of tetrahedrons, a
fractal diagram composed of tetrahedrons. I call this process, among
other things, democratization of control. If it works as I theorize,
we should be able to translate the model into practice, noticing
positive effects of moving tetrahedronally in response to conflict.

now what?...l&p hal
