Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Unless your boss has no statistics background I am surprised that he did not learn about 'reversion to the mean'. And if equilibrium means anything it should imply reversion to the mean. Glad to see you are having fun in your job. It is always good to enjoy one's work and having a good boss is important.

Perhaps his boss has too much of a stats background and knows that "regression to the mean" works only if the mean was honestly and accurately established and the inputs have not changed since then.  Otherwise there is no way of telling where you're headed other than to a new mean.
