The chess board is the world, the pieces are the phenomena of the universe,
the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the
other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, just and
patient. But we also know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake,
or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.
-- Thomas Henry Huxley
