I’ve been thinking about Turing Patterns in personality, allowances, impedances, sibling differentiation theory vs. emulation. Ada Lovelace became who she was because of her father partly, the influence of his memory on her and her loved ones. Those of us with siblings become foils of them, and those of us with idols attempt to become them. How successful we are at each leaves us with ripples, valleys of what we are not, the shadows we avoid, ridges we have stretched ourselves toward, virtues we have attained.
