But what is the aim, the goal, the desired theory (it could not possibly e with a capital T), of all this? Do you think you are going to be able to establish some rule, some law of nature, which will enable secure predictions to be made of future coincidences?
Possibilities, odds, probabilities - all very interesting to note and comment on, but you are not going to find some unknown power or 'mind' behind all this, are you.
