Before we turn to the Principle of Maximum Diversity, we review the development of the Principle of Least Action (or Effort), one of the mainstays of modern physics.

Dr. Christopher Jargodzki (Jargocki) was born and raised in Poland, studied at the University of Warsaw, and received his Ph.D. in quantum field theory from the University of California at Irvine. He taught for ten years at Northeastern University in Boston, and is now professor of physics at the University of Central Missouri. ᅠIn addition to papers in elementary particle theory ᅠand science and religion issues, he published four books dealing mainly with paradoxes and anomalies in physics, the most recent being MAD ABOUT PHYSICS (2001), and MAD ABOUT MODERN PHYSICS (2005), both co-authored with Franklin Potter of the University of California at Irvine. ᅠThe books have been translated into a number of languages, including Japanese, Chinese, Hindi, Spanish, and German. In 1996 he won a John Templeton award in the science and religion course competition, leading to a course called Science and Religion: From Conflict to Dialogue that is now offered as part of the core curriculum. Three years ago he started the Center for Cooperative Phenomena at the University of Central Missouri, partly funded by the Metanexus Institute and motivated both by his experiences in science and on the contemplative path.
