Absolutely. The English language is not nearly as sophisticated or in depth as, say, Greek. And because their language was so much more expansive, this is why we need a good concordance to accurately translate the meaning of any given word.
that's crap. we need a concordance because different languages are used differently and greek is not a code for english. it's the way greek people decided to interface with their world. it's no more complex, it's just different.
the cooperate-iterate model is one possible solution to the prisoner's dilema game theory problem. in this solution, you cooperate the first turn, and then continue to cooperate in each iteration.
yes, if you cooperate and the partner betrays, you lose and they win five points. but if you both cooperate, you both win three points--more than half of the betray booty.
however, given the rational actor model (on which game theory is predicated) states that an actor only betrays when they fear betrayal by their opponent. so. if you demonstrate a willingness to cooperate, then your partner will cooperate.
the importance to this game is the ITERATE which means repeat. this means you have a series of matches and a chance to demonstrate a pattern. now. in real life, it is possible that an antagonistic partner would take advantage of a pattern of cooperation. however, being antagonistic tends to get you bombed. further, if your opponent demonstrates a pattern of betrayal, you can also betray so that, while you still lose, your opponent doesn't win. also, one point is better than none.
