I fear explanations explanatory of things explained.
[Images of the brain] are very beautiful, but they're also very powerful.
They have great explanatory power.
The fundamental laws of physics do not describe true facts about reality.
Rendered as descriptions of facts, they are false; amended to be true, they lose their explanatory force.
There is a strong tendency in explanatory prose to invoke quantities of tension, energy, and whatnot to explain the genesis of pattern. I believe that all such explanations are inappropriate or wrong.
