I monitor the convergence of (data-vis, data architecture, mashups, ala rdf-web2-evolution) with powerful tools once relegated to exclusive sources and profound fields of information, freely available - sort of waiting for another perceptual breakthrough. A few years back, the exciting pace gave way to exhilarating. Everything is connected to everything - we can use computing systems to model TOEs.

When I began this thread, I had no idea a few weeks later an article in New Scientist would describe how "By analysing the most elegant and intricate pattern known to mathematics, Lisi has uncovered a relationship underlying all the universe's particles and forces, including gravity". Garrett's paper, titled "An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything" is located here. (And the video is on YouTube!)
So what is next ?

OK, so what if the metaphorical elephant were really a metaphorical black swan ?
Does epistemic arrogance = cognitive bias. And does that sufficiently explain why “The world we live in is vastly different from the world we think we live in.” ?

Ajay, thank-you for your comments. I agree with your sentiment, building a such a model is likely to *almost* succeed. Uncertainty coupled with cognitive bias present an computational epistemological challenge.
