    I am not trying to say too much here, only that the power curve is moving up as Sean says; the insurgency is adapting, the structure is changing and it, perhaps, has found a way to get at the ISF,...

    The power law

    Thanks for the heads-up. I was only able to take two terms of physic, the first and last of a three term set. So I studied an AC wave before I studied a Single Harmonic Motion. I went back and read...
