So much has happened in the past year. Somehow lost track of some of the time.

Maybe they are an artifact of the immaturity of our cognitive abilities.

I’ve been researching Babbage recently, and came across his Ninth Bridgewater Treatise . There are some profound insights and speculations there regarding the nature of our understanding of complex and rare events. Given Charlie’s contribution to establishing feasibility of ‘extreme computing’, one must pay attention to his other works. The NBT can shed some light on the multiple universe puzzle.
