所以,「追求『受歡迎』」,就相當於「追求『瘋子』的認同」。

即使我們假設「受歡迎」是正面的事情,「追求『受歡迎』」仍然是不智的,因為成本太大,效果太小:

你可以花一生的時間,令到自己受歡迎;但是,你的喪禮將會有多少人出席,還要視乎當日的天氣。

Superstring theory 2

Number of superstring theories

Theoretical physicists were troubled by the existence of five separate string theories. …

Please note that the number of superstring theories given above is only a high-level classification; the actual number of mathematically distinct theories which are compatible with observation and would therefore have to be examined to find the one that correctly describes nature is currently believed to be at least 10^500 (a one with five hundred zeroes).
