+First it makes you laugh, then it makes you think. What can psychology @DrMarkGriffiths teach us about the sea squirt? https://t.co/1G8h8H1gaY— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) May 17, 2018
I won't eat my own brain because I lost my "Rock of Gibraltar"
Having stumbled across the power of the IDD big data research method, which demolished establishment beliefs in the originality of my former heroes Richard Dawkins, Stanley Cohen, Jock Young, and Robert Merton, I set about using it to at least establish the veracity of my rock of Gibraltar knowledge that Darwin and Wallace did at least independently, yet dually, originated the prior-published theory of evolution by natural selection. But the new data I unearthed stopped me from eating my own brain like a sea squirt happily attached to its rock does.
Astoundingly, I originally unearthed the fact that Darwin’s and Wallace’s influencers, and their influencer's influencers, cited the book containing Patrick Matthew's prior-published breakthrough of the entire theory before they replicated it in 1858 (Darwin also in 1859) and replicated so many of Matthew's (1831) highly idiosyncratic explanatory examples. Darwin even originally four-word-shuffled Matthew's essential original term: 'natural process of selection' to 'process of natural selection' - the words process, selection and natural being absolutely essential to name the theory. Then, when challenged by Matthew in 1860, Darwin told proven lies to deny any naturalists had read Matthew's ideas before he replicated them without citing Matthew.
If you do not wish to eat YOUR own brain folks, then the business of clinging to your own "rock of Gibraltar" - rather than thinking about new facts that smash it to sand - psychology does indeed teach us a lot about what the sea squirt can teach us. For more info on this analogy, just Google "on knowledge contamination". And a paper on the IDD method has just been co published by myself and the leading psychologist Prof. Mark Griffiths see Sutton, M. and Griffiths, M. D. 2018.

Hi @sianbeilock Do you think that perhaps the Sea Squirt provides us with a useful humorous psychological analogy about the danger of clinging to our safe and "establishment" promoted beliefs as our Rock of Gibraltar in a sea of uncertain knowledge? https://t.co/1G8h8H1gaY pic.twitter.com/khYk4Xf6cq— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) May 17, 2018

"The data can reveal secrets to those with the humility, the willingness and the tools to listen."
"Most strikingly, society will have to shed some of its obsession for causality in exchange for simple correlations: not knowing why but only what. This overturns centuries of established practices and challenges our most basic understanding of how to make decisions and comprehend reality."
Today @mattrudd Big Data research technology has enabled us to build upon what we learned from its power to discover and therein knock out the spinach supermyth https://t.co/eZMHYJhWuw Its found publications buried like fossils that our change knowledge: https://t.co/waIQjoe3EE— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) May 18, 2018
Darwin is now awarded for science fraud. Delighted see that the world's leading experts on #science fraud have identified that my research means we must now add #CharlesDarwin to the list of the World's greatest lying science fraudsters by #plagiarism : https://t.co/uDWRdLPKJd pic.twitter.com/qPWXu3pryN— Dr Mike Sutton (@Criminotweet) May 19, 2018
