Subject: Pattern without Process

   Is it possible to produce a natural classification without any knowledge
about the process of evolution of a group?

   Some "noise" arises when one says that a cladogram is not a phylogenetic
tree. It is quite simple to put apart the ancestrality of a group, but doing
so we are not making our analysis to be so closed in spirit and cold???

   Can we access the pattern of evolution without the process?????
