Do you suppose that law and econ guru Judge Posner understood the concept of transitivity (i.e., if A>B, and B>C, then A>C) as a little infant? Because my little infant son does not.
He has a new set of blocks to play with. They come in three colors (blue, green, and red) and three shapes (square, circle, and star). He likes grabbing blocks, one in each hand, and chewing on them. The other day, he had a red square and a blue circle, so I picked up a green star and started to pretend like I was chewing on it. He dropped the red square and grabbed the green star from me. So I picked up the red square and pretended to chew on it. He dropped the blue circle and grabbed the red square. So I picked up the blue circle and pretended to chew on it. He dropped the green star and grabbed the blue circle . . . ending up exactly where he was when we started. So I picked up the green star . . . .
