Hi Cube,

Thanks for that link.

It brings to mind another quote from Richard (if we're aiming for terse descriptions) that he expressed during an interview on an Irish program (whose name escapes me at the moment): He was asked to sum up the essence of Darwinian evolution, and his response was something like, "the non-random survival of randomly-varying codes."

I suspect that people like princezephyr need to hear that bit early and often; it might prompt some of them to pause, scratch their heads, and then maybe read up on the subject.
