63. My point is you are trained to look at behavior in a fairly natural state.
Those are the assumptions you are entering into the study with. Very normal thing to do as a scientist, but I think you need to look at this system as being potentially unnatural, possibly manipulated by an external agenda, perhaps fraudulent.

Different beginning assumptions initiate different views and therefore different studies and different results. That's a standard hazard.
And it's why I think you would be wise to try and look at the situation from as many sides as you can, not just the one you are used to.
