It might if it's either very ambitious or very pretentious.

That certainly appears to be Adam's explanation, and as he is the author of said book. We should probably assume he was being truthful as to how he came up with the answer, and what it actually meant -- to him -- at the time.

Still, if the universe is a kind of "grand computer" running a program of some sort, inspiration might be -- in and of itself -- a kind of coded message from the holographic logos. None of that has to be "literally true," because metaphors possess at least as much utility as truth, and perhaps a bit more. It's something to chew on anyway.

A snail doesn't care for the mona lisa.

Art is subjective.


Knowing many Chimps I disagree with you, many are saving bananas in hope to swap them for a little yacht
