Nah! They're not physicists, they're mathematicians!

One of them wrote the proof of the theorem, which ran to twenty pages, and the rest all agreed that it was a "marvelous proof", rather than admit they didn't understand it.

They then wrote a simulation of that theorem in distributed Concurrent Haskell and ran it at 1000 times real-time speed on a massively parallel computing cloud, to show how it would work. They simulated everything. Markets; bears; bulls; oil-prices; OJ & pork-belly futures; war-zones & disasters; government changes; local and global economy heath; employment trends; factory gate prices; the macro and micro economic decisions taken by the major central banks around the world; and a zillion other influences.

Unfortunately, rather than risk the purity of their model with potentially corrupted data from the outside world, they simulated the market with a sophisticated Maybe Monad wrapped around a PRNG. But being a greedy algorithm running over a lazy list on an ethereal system, the result was inevitable :)


Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
