Two questions: can we understand "parational" as simply
"apparently logical"? And, what's the difference (if any)
between things that survive by being parational, and those
that survive because their doing so does not conflict
with any law of nature? (The implication of the second
question being, of course, that parationality, if it reduces
to "in accordance with the laws of nature", doesn't add
anything to our understanding.)
