SO MUCH OF ECONNED: Reminds one of old time science fiction where people had discovered secret scientific rules of predicting human behavior. Like when you're given anecdotes about trading firms putting such stock in mathematical formulas designed to extract money from market behavior, which is of course a special case of human behavior. In the genre I believe trying to use those rules usually blew up in people's faces. Who says science fiction doesn't have predictive power?
