(No, I'm not talking to myself, but to the *other* "Nick" <g>.)

While I find myself basically on the side of multiple-cause theories, it is a
mistake to refer to the failure of "hard" sciences as proof of the hassles of
single-cause theories. "Hard" science still to this day continues to attempt
to "unify." It is this desire which has led to the creation of "String
Theories," which -- so far -- seem basically to be successful single-cause
theories for physics.

So it is not entirely impossible, and hard science, in fact, shows that.
