I think I proposed a similar idea in the thread "Re: Virus: SM" on Mon,

"So, given n-time, there are n(squared) number of possibilities wherein the
population and the individual contain both "all" and "one" minus "common"
ancestral lineages as is verified by the concept of x-time."

Although the system used to come up with this conclusion may be uniquely
suited to my own metaphysical outlook, I have used it to satisfy myself that
McFadzean's assertion (above) is correct. I go on record as agreeing with
the statement. Further, I think the point is important and relevant (is not
a "straw man").
