Nature Is Playing a Game

July 24, 2010 · Published in Philosophy, Science  by Jonathan Garrison ·

It appears that Nature is playing a game. There is consistency to her moves, so we have faith (but no guarantee) that there are rules. To make matters worse, we don’t have a copy of the instruction manual. So, it becomes the scientist’s job to watch the game unfold and maybe interfere occasionally. By doing so, we learn how to play. Maybe, if we’re careful and play nice, we won’t put an eye out.
