Random Thoughts

“There is no reason to assume that the universe has the slightest interest in intelligence—or even in life. Both may be random accidental by-products of its operations like the beautiful patterns on a butterfly’s wings. The insect would fly just as well without them.”

— Arthur C. Clarke, The Lost Worlds of 2001, 1972
