Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. RC Sproul

Re: Harlan Ellison, 1934-2018
he wrote what I consider one of the best original star trek episodes (City at the edge of forever)... and the short stories 'a boy and his dog' and 'I have no mouth but I must scream' are certainly classics.
