This produces a situation where different ?species? of solution develop to exploit different ?niches? of the problem ? indicating exploitable solutions. It is argued that for context to be fully learnable a further step of abstraction is necessary. Such contexts abstracted from clusters of solution/model domains make sense of the problem of how to identify when it is the content of a model is wrong and when it is the context. Some principles of learning to identify useful contexts are proposed.} }
