Background: The FQXi challenge is the second time our simple model has been placed in a public square.  The first time, in 2012, it was curtailed as original research by a Wikipedia editor at MIT who recognized that the work was not within current academic research. It took us at least three years to believe that something so simple had not been explored. Well, it appears that it is too simple so we continue exploring the logic; and, this exercise with FQXi has been most helpful in opening a cursory understanding of the breadth of the logic involved in these matters.
