    I find that when there are 3 or 4 or 12 or 24 theories for why any given thing happened, it’s because any given thing was overdetermined.

    Which doesn’t mean that every single one of the 3 or 4 or 12 or 24 things was right, but it’s likely that a good chunk of them were (especially in the case of 24).

    Which means that we’re now going to be better off asking “how did we not see this coming, given that it was overdetermined?” than assuming that we were right to have been wrong and those guys were wrong to have been right and if it were best of 7, we’d win.Report
