    That is just the problem Wade ! Making models implies generalisation_ my take is that individualism must relocate itself, it has, to spell it out, make itself a better selective choise. From there we can make ' individualistic' models, for each and everyone of us. Prediction would than be individualistic biased. It would raise interests we all naturally feel.
