I heard him lecture at FermiLab a few years ago. He
sounded more like a rabbi than a scientist, obviously
in love with the idea that he could see statistics,
evolution, and baseball all as examples of similar
principles and move between them effortlessly.

But he was a physicalist and materialist, as all
contemporary normative scientists must be. And on
those grounds he was not really part of the cultural
solution I envision.
