He's not here, but Sheldon Glashow (Nobel Laureate, for
charmed quarks, and family friend) agrees with Dennis.
On the other hand, Einstein was convinced that "God does
not play dice with the universe." So who knows?

On similar grounds to Einstein, I'm skeptical it's the answer.
It just seems too complicated. With any luck, we'll all have a
few centuries to watch the research unfold, and can resume
the thread then.
