Range-widely.

Attend to local WDB2T.

Range-Widey, more, while carrying
the formerly-local, now non-local,
WDB2T with you :-]

It's not a 'non-locality receiver'.

It's like a combined dump truck and
cement mixer.

It's a local-WDB2T carry-and-cross-
correlate-all.

Get-it?

The rest of this post is just thinking-
out-loud stuff - don't bother with it
unless you're 'bored'. [I used to write
such thoughts into notebooks - so that
I could return to them later, and integrate
them with other stuff. But I've got so
many notebooks, and I've no 'time' to
return to them - so it seems that I should
just write my notebook-stuff in a msg,
send it off, and let it 'bolw in the wind'.

'normal' V D-R thresholds are set
low, so the behavioral by-products of
TD E/I-minimization that folks manifest
tend to 'blow in the wind' of whatever
local WDB2T that they are 'moment-
arily' experiencing.

This, 'typically', results in 'cordial'
interactive dynamics in which there's
a tacit 'agreement' that 'the Problem'
will not actually be Solved.

It's 'funny'. The folks who are most
adept at being 'cordial' in this way
are the folks who tend to be bouyed
to the 'top' within interactive dynamics -
they are 'rewarded' for the 'popularity'
that springs from their adeptness at
being 'cordial'.

What's 'funny' is that these dynamics
select for folks who're least-likely to
actually do what needs to be dome :-]

'Social intelligence'.

Correction: I see, now, that my state-
ment, above, "'normal' V D-R thresholds
are set low, so the behavioral by-products
of TD E/I-minimization that folks manifest
tend to 'blow in the wind' of whatever
local WDB2T that they are 'moment-
arily' experiencing."is not-True.

'normal' V D-R thresholds that 'blow in
the wind' of local WDB2T, =can be=
set high. It's just that the 'problem' with
respect to which they're tuned is this
'popularity' stuff, with the implicit 'goal'
of garnering 'power' for one's self, as
'popularity' augments.

The only Problem with this is that it
leaves these 'powerful' folks unable to
actually do anything that needs to be
done.

And that is what's 'funny' :-]

And very-interesting.

And very-'Scary'.

It's as Dylan Sang, "The answer, my
friend, is blowin' in the wind". [The Song
asked Hard questions about Hard things,
like War, and Sons being sacrificed to
it's non-sense. I'll have to look-up the
Lyrics.]

Anyway, "the wind" is as above.
