    "Idea" is probably too vague for science.

    Derek: Yes, it is.

    Bill: At the same time, number is not necessary for science, either

    Derek: True. It does help, though. All the best science has a strong quantitative dimension.

    Bill: Consider the TIT-FOR-TAT meme for the Prisoner's Dilemma. (Or don't you think that it's a meme, Derek?)

    Derek: It depends on the circumstances. If the behaviour is predictable enough to conform to the rules, then why not.
