I’m in my head again. My lizard brain has co-opted my prefrontal cortex and is using it like a botnet to cycle through the various using permutations, searching for the one with the lowest probability of detection. It’s like a classic n-dimensional optimization problem: it’s trying to find a global optimization first (for example, beat the UA) and then doing a local optimization on that to fine tune the global solution.
The wild thing is, if I could actually determine fairly accurate probabilities of detection for the inputs into each solution set, global and local, I could write a piece of software that would actually determine the ‘best’ (i.e., lowest detection probability) using scenario.
I believe this is what is known as being “too clever by half”. It stands a good chance of getting me killed.
