Pre-calibration State

"What do you suppose they meant by 'granularity of sense and control'?"

"Maybe that the routines passed on in replication could not be sufficiently tuned to the current environment.

"Preparation to acquire-and-learn is the limit of programming in such a context. It may have been convenient to debate nature vs. nurture as if they were all but separate from each other.

"The more robust view now possible suggests a communications 'membrane' between the two far more interesting than anticipated."

Drifting away from the topic she had hoped they would address it was clearly an opportunity to lean in. Too much engine, not enough steering and sense of the road. Natural selection more appropriate for the survival days.
