Well, if it did, then earthworms would
have a more chaotic view than Einstein
had. Hmmmm.... Einstein's dying wish
to have lived as a "plumber" makes all
the more sense now.

If you believe that an unlimited ability
to handle complex situations leads to an
infinitely (or perfectly) ordered view,
then you might have forgotten death. No
one can (afaik) direct the course of
life. But anyone who can swing a hammer
can direct death.
