The mathematical universe

This is a mathematical universe, but we don't always know what the numbers are. The more variables there are, the more complex and more difficult it is to make accurate predictions. And there's almost always more variables than we think there are.

It's important to have a vision and to have faith in that vision. But we should also remain flexible. We shouldn't expect to have a perfectly clear view. We should expect that reality is going to reveal some holes in our thinking.
