There are some who have an almost pathological objection to theory, and then there are some who believe there’s nothing more useful than a good theory. I fall into the latter camp. What I want to show here is that theory is a natural consequence of living, and that we Homo sapiens, are theory generating and using ‘machines’ and there’s nothing we can do about it. Theory making is natural, so if even if your first reaction is to reject theorising, and the people who you think create it, you too are a theorist. Don’t throw theory overboard, one day it might be just what you need. To illustrate my position I use two 'theories' from Max Boisot, E-space and C-space
