Absolutely. You see, I know you think of math and science as rigid and uncreative, but I see it just like you see art. There isn't this rigid search for one right answer, but this elegant languange to describe the universe. I'm not solving for X in the same way you're not drawing a perfect circles. And when it works, when something you believe to be true fits the observed the facts... when a pattern emerges out of the millions of strands of data... when a pattern emerges from a seemingly endless sea of unconnected dots... it's beautiful. To me it's beautiful. Do you understand? And so when I create this thing... when I design a system that ensures that... you know... the human animal will keep on going and our children will keep on refining their view of the universe... Yes I'm proud. Is it perfect? No. But it's where we are.

Look, let me explain it to you. A simplistic example. So a human being is a plant. Or a tree. And see if you know where the seed the planted, the environmental influences that will shape its growth and direction. Now, granted... environmental influences are far more complex for a human being than it is for a tree... you know what we watch, what we consume, multiple sets of generational influence and you can add thousands of dimensions to the complexity of the problem. But here. Basically, if I take tree A and guess based on where it was planted, direction of light, etc... And tree B which has been planted somewhere else with a different set of environmental factors, I can reasonably predict that they grow together. See? So it isn?t hard-coded into our DNA. It?s not some equation measuring relative guanine... although that might be interesting as test group... but it?s a measure of factors of that influence us and how that affects what we find attractive in the other people.
