This theory envisions a universe which is finite and competitive rather than infinite and harmonious. It is a universe which is lawful, yet unpredictable in many of its emergent expressions. It is a causal universe, but not a determined universe. It is a universe which can be understood within the potential of the ?tools? presently available. This is not to suggest that we (the generic ?we?) are there yet. It is a ?work in progress.?
