THE RETROFACTION SYSTEM
Very nice work, Bruce.
Now, have you figured out a way to tell whether organisms in an operent
conditioning experiment are behaving as retrofaction systems or as Killeen
Machines? Or is a Killeen Machine basically the same as a retrofaction system?

I think it's still "Behavior", so it's B:RP.

Why do you believe that if perception is informative it cannot be
"spontefacted", and vice- versa?
Because perceptions don't know what state you want then in; therefore, they
can't be very informative about how you should act to influence them.
Oh, dear. I hope we aren't going to start into another fruitless "information
IN perception" round of postings.
