Default Theater Model for Evo-Devo Psychotherapy

"I know that you feel and believe what you report to are an actor that lives his lines.

"I, however, am an audience and curious to hear what you say but I also want to know about the architecture for your beliefs. I want to see the carpenters and electricians as they work.

"By watching your reactions to my observations, we explore and discover an alternate set of beliefs that might adjust those that you brought to me. We sample those changes in small steps and either accept, reject, or change them further on the basis of new experiences that you will have."

Raff's developmental model works in one more context...
Now I have to work in Sewall Wright's ideas on fitness landscapes!
