  In this season of the the NFL playoffs is it just coincidence that all of
the discussion regarding biological success has been related to numbers.
What about an ecological or evolutionary perspective?  Is not a species,
regardless of any biological number that is afixed to it successful if
it succeeds in its ecosystem by reproducing from generation to generation
regardless of its mass or ploidy or what ever other number that we
attach to it?
