How often have I said to you that when you heve eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?
Sherlock Holmes in "The Sign of Four" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1890
The principle of maximum diversity operates both at the physical and at the mental level. It says that the laws of nature and the initial conditions are such as to make the universe as interesting as possible. As a result, life is possible but not too easy. Always when things are dull, something new turns up to challenge us and to stop us from settling into a rut. Examples of things which make life difficult are all around us: comet impacts, ice ages, weapons, plagues, nuclear fission, computers, sex, sin and death. Not all challenges can be overcome, and so we have tragedy. Maximum diversity often leads to maximum stress. In the end we survive, but only by the skin of our teeth.
Freeman Dyson, "Infinite in All Directions"

Albert Einstein
