It could be one of the most ambitious computer projects ever conceived.

I can save a lot of time and money here..
It's 42 (just wanted to be the first)
Don't panic!

On a more serious note ..
This is a futile exercise,
There a too many variables that interact and it all becomes chaos theory which can only be proved after the fact.
Pride goeth before a fall is all I can say.

Sorry. There a should read There are

42 (as stated ) is the answer , the super duper computer model designed by DT was to provide the question.

Will be interesting to see the data this experiment produces,
Although they say the most successful experiments are the ones that fail.

I admire there balls for trying this.

Perhaps we are already someone's simulation?

During this experiment, would it be possible to write politicians out of the programme and see how much better the world does?!
