Dullards would have you believe that once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth…but to a mathematical mind, the impossible is simply a theorem yet to be solved. We must not eliminate the impossible, we must conquer it, suborn it to our purpose. Whatever remains, however dully probable, will satisfy earthbound thinkers, while we have the profit of the hitherto inconceivable. Besides, I doubt anyone with a silver bullet in his brains couldn’t tell it from lead.
