    First, no on'e trying to show it with probability
1. Just close.
    By "rational", as I was saying in my last post, I
think the point is that observations tend to be less
complex than would be obtained by just randomly
choosing observations from the set of all possible
observations. If a person is not rational, that
doesn't mean his brain (with his universe) is that
much more complicated than that of a rational person.
