Note: By necessity this page will start out with crackpot theories, wrong ideas, and untested hypotheses. The goal is to identify the difference between theories that should be tested, and case studies of actual superstructing that can be evaluated. It's fine to theorize, but try to protovate your theories as much as possible. Remember your scientific method: 1) Observe, 2) Make a hypothesis, 3) Make a prediction, 4) Test, and back to 1) Observe.

Organizational Proposal I'd like to break these out into seperate pages for discussion & experimentation. I'd like to see people nominate specific cases for discussion. This will help us to coordinate badge nominations. User:Hector Valentine
