interesting as the experiments are, their relevance to the real-life situation is rendered questionable by the unthinking use of given singularities as target objects. the evolutionary process does not respect what one agent takes to be a singular referent. a “singling” from the continuum is rather a varying feature of the necessity to track what is rewarding in it.
