This discussion paper attempts to pull together a collection of ideas that I have been working on intermittently for many years, whose relationships have become clearer to me in the context of the CoSy Playmate Robot project and in discussions about nature-nurture tradeoffs with a colleague who studies cognition in animals, especially birds.

The paper was started, but abandoned because of pressure of work. However, there is a directly relevant pdf presentation here.
