Geological Time

"The formation in geological time of the human body by the laws of physics (or any other laws of similar nature), starting from a random distribution of elementary particles and the field is as unlikely as the separation of the atmosphere into its components. The complexity of the living things has to be present within the material [from which they are derived] or in the laws [governing their formation]."

- Kurt Godel (1906 - 1978)

Hey Andy,

Great post from Kurt Godel. It is amazing to think of the world this way as the probability of all of us being here has deep significance.

Thanks for the thought,
