Unofficial lecture on representations, intro to rECS and Master Thesis

So I'm writing my thesis on abandoning representations and replacing it with ecological psychology, and this is bits and pieces of what I'm writing. To fit one lecture I obviously had to leave out a whole lot of information. Even information that would change some of the subject matter. The idea I had was to introduce, not even all of, the basic stuff I have in my thesis and was hoping to get some critique and comments on it.
