Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect

Post by Veil » Sat Mar 16, 2019 11:40 am

I recently came across this phenomenon, and an interesting piece of trivia is that Michael Crichton coined the phrase. What do you think? Good to be aware of?

I think this is worth discussing, if only to be aware of it. I think it's a shame there isn't much to go on except the Crichton sourcing. I doubt it will ever gain true legs in a formal sense. But yeah. Good to be aware of.
