Wuulllll, wait a minute.  I didn't get the notion that he was testing to
see if a real-world configuration would work.  Most engineering and
science projects don't test the real world (less so now than in times
past, and I don't mean global warming).

It looks like he has designed an experiment to test a narrow range of
conditions that look to be useful for piecing together what the larger
(and largely un-testable) picture might look like.

Somebody should have said:
A democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

Freedom under a constitutional republic is a well armed lamb contesting
the vote.
