In a Chicago Tribune interview, he says:
I could be wrong, but science needs to cross a threshold and explain why a monkey typing infinitely would never type the works of Shakespeare.
Well, I could be wrong, but maybe Nolan is a bit of an idiot when it comes to science.
Please, Mr. Nolan, tell me which scientists make this claim?
I guess he read somewhere about infinity and how incredibly awesome and big and never-ending it is, and so eventually anything would be done by anybody or anything and so even monkeys would "eventually" write Shakespeare and and and....
Produce a movie called Interstellar with Matthew McConaughey.
In fact, maybe Chris Nolan is actually a monkey who crossed over from that obelisk in 2001, and got super smart and so a monkey already has produced a movie called Interstellar.
Damn, that is just so cool and so weird and it's like, that's never going to happen, man, no way.
So scientists had better figure out WHY that is not going to happen when they obviously really believe that it WILL happen (go, monkey, go!).
And to do that, they are going to have a cross a threshold, 'cause clearly science has hit its limit here. Just like with souls. Science can't explain souls, so I guess scientists had better cross over - maybe into a parallel universe -
Because really what could be cooler than parallel universes?
