authority and editing (Heisenberg uncertainty principle)LO28578

Replying to LO28527 --

The game of chess differs from the game of life, in that the solution
doesn't need to be 'win-win'. The rules of the game of life include 'he
who dies with the most toys wins' (the joke is - you're still dead!). Both
games can be improved by managing risk, however the game of life is more
responsive, the uncertainties are much more in number and varied. So I
suggest we stop thinking like engineers, where there is a little empirical
formula for everything, and learn to handle uncertainties in terms of
likelihood and consequences.

Best Regards,
Alan Cotterell
