A Wild Image from Six Degrees

I am reading the preface of this book – and already I am intrigued by the hypothesis. The hypothesis is that science needs a fresh approach to understand how connectivity works. Here is a great quote

The dream of Pierre Laplace, the great nineteenth-century Frenhc mathematician – that the universe could be understood in its entirety through reduction to the physics of fundamental particles, churned through a sufficiently powerful computer – has spent the better part of the last century staggering around the scientific stage like a mortally wounded Shakespearean actor, uttering its final soliloquy before finally collapsing altogether.

Bravo! Kind a makes you want to read on!
