Every new field we decide to consider "relevant" to our efforts stretches us just so much thinner -- forces us into areas of which we are irredeemably ignorant. We hope to avoid producing either another dilettante's "theory of living systems," or a narrow treatment of specific ecological phenomena. In order to do this, by definition, we must find a way of capitalizing on our areas of special understanding and expertise (i.e., ecology), while creatively incorporating what we can in some sense "securely" gain from the other fields.
