I love this kind of experiment in meta-view -- in this case modeling diffusion in networks. How much can be drawn by analogy is up for debate, but it's fun to play around with the data modeling in any case.

Current conundrum: How does one "invest" in retirement (e.g. IRAs) when the entire system is implicated?

Some soul-nourishing perspective from David Abram. We are alive and breathing on a living, breathing planet. Sentience. This way of knowing speaks more deeply to me than any other.
