    Haha, doesn't it, though? I find myself trying to do just that.. I'll study a bit deeper into some topic, then switch over to another one, then maybe back to the original topic, and so on.. depending on my mood, what I'm interested in, and what needs to be done.

    Sympatric speciation? They would likely be co-dependent (otherwise the benefits resulting from specialization would disappear).
