I'm a philosopher of science. Philosophers of science get very worked up about underdetermination, which is where all of the things about something aren't enough to establish some other thing. Like how all of my genetic code doesn't tell us which country I'm a citizen of. Or how all of the data science can generate doesn't tell us which theories are true. There's also overdetermination, which is where all of the things about something are more than enough to establish some other thing. Like how after one episode there were already well in excess of a sufficient number of reasons for me to be rabid in my adoration of Firefly. Nevertheless, the final episode racked up the latest overdeterminator:
Wash: Psychic? That sounds like something out of science fiction.Many more erudite reasons (and, like, a way funnier post header) over at Fretmarks.
Zoe: We live on a spaceship, dear.
