Also, mice have acentric chromosome fusions since all their chromosome are acentric or acentric fusions.
The charge of anthropocentricity is explicitly addressed by the mystery approach, which attempts to give aesthetic appreciation of nature an “acentric” basis (Godlovitch 1994).
In the actual regression, how much impact numerically on HS index comes from this acentric method.
I agree that the acentric method creates a PC1 that is more HS-shaped than otherwise.
Even if they are right, that the acentric method did no damage in MBH98, they still need to (1) acknowledge that it is wrong as a method and (2) make the assessment of how much it changes things mathematically.
What is a mathematical description of the “type of object” that acentric PCA mines for?
The point is that acentric versus centric does not produce much of a difference with echo-G type input. you make the contention that it does with “hockey stick shaped” input.
What VZ showed was minimal construction of hockey stick by acentric PCA versus centered PCA with Echo-G inputs.
For GENERAL investigations, you need to check methodology impacts e.g. acentric PCA or even some new issue on the end product reconstruction.
So fine: (1) define what a bad apple is, (2) show that it is present in the data field and (3) show how acentric versus centric PCA changes the mining of that “bad apple”.
