loopy science: getting it less wrong

Thanks all for interesting conversation this morning re "loopy" science.  Yes, there is an "inference" involved in making a "summary of observations," an inference that the summary will always hold, is "universal."  And so the diagram should probably say "generalized summary of observations" instead of just "summary of observations."
