# Corollary to Occam's razor

Loren Booda
Occam's razor may be stated: "No more things should be presumed to exist than are absolutely necessary."

My corollary: "The overall physical system is such that maximizes interactions."

I don't know lbooda.... I mean the Principle of Least Action tells us that the interactions of a physical system should be minimized.

Why ?

Why such a pessimistic note? Did some complicated pet theory fail to deliver?

I think something bad happened to Alexander
today according to his responses. Or maybe
he's just a bit drunk or something...

Not yet.

That is why.

drag - eNtRopY may be correct, but I did mean the entire physical system rather than a simple closed path, and the number of interactions rather than the total action.

Alexander, you caught me with my weak assumptions trying to emulate Einstein's success. Didn't he have a lot of "pet" theories, at least a lot of girlfriend interactions, thus a lot of young Einsteins?

I'd be interested to see yall's best pet theories.
