How do you catch a lion with your bare hands?
Catch two and let one escape.
I’m positive I will understand that after my sixth cup of Earl Grey Tea.
Add a couple of quarts of good English ale too…
Alright! alright! I can’t take it. What does it mean? The tea didn’t work. The ale didn’t work. Even the benadryl didn’t help much either. I can’t go into the weekend without understanding.
Whilst discussing circular systems, Polanyi re-told a story about a lion. And two honey-gatherers.
Wow Peter – yours is more cryptic than mine (maybe I’ll come to it in Polyani’s book!).
Hanan, it’s just a simple metaphor for random mutation & natural selection that I felt he put very succinctly – natural selection tells you which lion to release. But there’s rather a big gap in telling you how to get hold of a lion or two in the first place. The arrival of the fittest was known to be a problem back in the 1950s, and hasn’t gone away yet.
