    Bolivian Deforestation

    "Once a vast carpet of healthy vegetation and virgin forest, the Amazon rain forest is changing rapidly. This image of Bolivia shows dramatic deforestation in the Amazon Basin. Loggers have cut long paths into the forest, while ranchers have cleared large blocks for their herds. Fanning out from these clear-cut areas are settlements built in radial arrangements of fields and farms. Healthy vegetation appears bright red in this image."

    Looking pretty consistently predictable to me, these humans.

    When I studied genetics I thought we lived in a binary word, I realized that some of the genes in the chromosomes behaved like discrete numbers, they are inherited or not, and they are expressed or not as well, your eyes colors come from a combination of your inherited eyes genes and they express by choosing always the dominant over the recessive one, not by mixing the colors and reaching an intermediate one. Same happens with the sex of your kid, except for the dominant part, it is either chromosome x or y, no in betweens..

    Just because simulations and reality might be written in the same languages and exhibit similar forms does not mean one is the other.
