Computer Simulations Allow for Mistakes

. . in real life mistakes are likely to be irrevocable. Computer simulation, however, makes it economically practical to make mistakes on purpose. If you are astute, therefore, you can leam much more than they cost. FurtherĀ¬ more, if you are at all discreet, no one but you need ever know you made a mistake.

Notes:

Where mistakes in the real world don't allow do-overs.
