    • book by Stewart Brand, on how buildings are modified after they are built.
    • Introduced(?) the concept of pace layering.

    • Interesting to apply pace layering to the mind. From the bottom up
      • Nature would be reflexes,
      • then learned motor habits like gait and posture
      • the middle layers would be things like culture, ideology, identity
      • practical knowledge, crafts
      • daily routines
      • moment-to-moment improvisation
    • OK that doesn't quite work, because any mental act requieres the participation of multiple layers. still I think there's something to the idea. Want to run it past Meaningness or some other pundits.
