"gravity-like": at this point in the discussion, I'm using this only as 
a metaphor... to evoke an all-permeating "attraction".

Throughout their entire extents, nervous systems are "attracted" to 
minimizing the topologically-distributed ratios of excitation to 
inhibition that occur within themselves. Behavior is produced only as a 
by-product of such TD E/I(min). This is the "duality" referenced in the 
theory's name: "Duality Theory"... As CNSs achieve TD E/I(min), they 
simultaneously by-produce behavior that, to the degree that TD E/I is, 
in fact, minimized, is "appropriate" within the environmental 
circumstances that the host organism is experiencing.

All of this stands verified. ken collins
