    Sorry, I've been rather sloppy. I mean `living world'.
    While we're at it: There are evolutionary theories on the
    universe going around too. The one formulated by physicist
    Lee Smolin is particularly charming.
    However, no matter how plausible they may all seem, it will
    always be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, to confirm
    them empirically.
