The answer I propose is that successive critical transitions (at each time), due to the complexity caused by interactions at large distances, tend to amplify the Gaussian distribution to all range of energies, making it flatter.

However, the use of the FHL cannot be restricted to mapping the Gaussian distribution alone, because many datasets can deviate significantly from such a distribution.
