Why is simpler better?

Johnjoe McFadden

for anyone interested, my new book - in prep - ‘Life is Simple: Ockham’s razor and the Triumph of Simplicity’ (to be published by Macmillan/Flatiron in 2017) will make the claim that the ‘unreasonable effectiveness of Ockham’s razor’ implies that, for unknown reasons (but I will speculate on a few) our universe is close to being maximimally simple that is compatible with our existence.
