1) Antifragile on health of bones: bones are part of the endocrine system, not some engineering structure.

You don't improve your bone with exercise machine.

@Mangan150 attributes the fertility crisis to correlative (Om 6), not causative (osteopenia)

2) The bone also regulates memory and mental functions via osteocalcin (Karsenty).

SPECULATION: can healthier bones for overweight pple explain the all-cause-mortality effect?

POLICY: just follow the phenomenology that healthy pplw have healthy bones and ignore mechanisms?
3) We know that osteocalcin restores muscle endurance. Muscles strength are less investigated.

Again fughedabout mechanisms, take phenomenology: @CoachRippetoe reports that only heavy weight bearing exercises you do standing up count.

1/1 Tweet thread from @NECSI's (New England Complex Systems Institute) annual conference, #ICCS2018.

@stephen_wolfram remembers the founding of modern complexity science in the 80s when his physics toolkit wasn't able to explain certain fluid dynamics.
1/2 @stephen_wolfram luckily had been coding, which had the mindset: create a certain set of primitives and then propagate them to learn about the world.

This same mindset could be used with complex systems: take primitives then propagate them and see what happens.

1/3 @stephen_wolfram started exploring certain propagation systems. He found some of them "seemed random" and could not be simplified. Systems like digits of pi and primes numbers.

Instead of searching for pattern, see that the MAIN meta-pattern is randomness.
