The Great Research Program

Each of us is a theory, put forward by nature - a hypothesis, about what can and will survive.  And every one of us theories gets tested by our experience, and every single one fails.  But some theories are fecund and fertile and give rise to other theories - that is, these theories produce new theories, by reproducing themselves, but every copy of a theory is a slight variation on the original.  And these new theories will be tested in the great experiment of life and some will pass the test a bit longer and give rise to yet more theories, and thus the great research program continues.
