Occam's chest-rug: a gluttony theory

 Parsimony Theory is all very well if you want to explain how Nature probably did stuff in any given instance.   But if you want to understand how Nature is probably going to go about doing stuff you may need to use Gluttony Theory: by any and all means possible and available.

If you want to make art or other such dodgy activities like learning or understanding things you will probably use Gluttony Theory at some point too. There's a terrible fallacy going about that things have single causes or motivations or 'reasons' and people should stop it right now because it just ain't true.

The pink guy is a pretty larva I found in an Alnus glutinosa cone, I couldn't find what kind, it's here because it's fat.
