I've been peeling back the onion and researching the earlier initiatives of both D5GW and other blogs that delve into the theories of xGW. The more I dig the more I realize that my own ideologies regarding xGW become something of a situation where I am reading the book my predecessors/cohorts have written:
"I think Lind’s general thinking on generations is pretty good, although I’ve also argued against seeing a neat division of time periods and the ‘generations.’" Curtis' commentary at Shloky (10/30/06)
Compare the above to my own early criticism of the xGW framework sans knowledge of Shloky's blog.
"Can the human strategic ability be Darwinized in the same fashion as that of genetic advantage? Is the difference between Hannibal and Patten inclusive of combat evolution? This theory seems to work fine as long as one generalizes warfare throughout the ages and ignores or marginalizes the human aspect of ingenuity."Same position, different context.
