Sorry for the late response. You're absolutely right, it is circular. I'm now using LIE as more of guiding principal that a method. I hope to get a chance to post more on this later, but wanted to partially answer this as you've waited so long.

Very interesting - thanks for sharing this. I'll probably come back to ask you more about this later, but it sounds promising.
