I recently changed some of my ideas about science based on reading an important book called "The Beginning of Infinity," by David Deutsch. (Well worth the read, by the way.) I had what I now think are some misconceptions. I attempt to describe them in this episode.

I also connect my new concepts to the idea I shared in a recent episode: that of love being the answer. I share my new definition of love: it is the will or desire for a thing to exist.

You can read about Saving Mr. Banks here: (I misspoke on two accounts: the move is not called Saving Mrs. Banks, and the author's name is P.L. Travers rather than R.L.)
