bdhinton: In essence he's saying, we've dropped the ball a million times. It just lands in one of the holes at the bottom. I can therefore infer that to get to something else besides these holes, I need something not accounted for yet in the theory of pachinko.

me: What you just said makes no sense at all if you're dealing with a pachinko machine that has a trillion holes.

Whoops, actually on rereading Bryan's post, it doesn't quite say what I thought it did. I thought you were saying that you can't see a path to the hole that the ball is in. Instead, you're saying the ball is not in the pachinko machine. That makes even LESS sense than my original interpretation. Get your own analogy.
