God's games according to Richard Feynman.

God does play a game, according to Richard Feynman. He once noted that discovering the laws of Physics is like trying to learn the rules of Chess by merely watching the game from time to time, from a corner, perhaps.

A BBC video from 1981 has him explaining this analogy and also the importance of mathematics...

A wonderful series of Physics lectures by Feynman from the University of Auckland, as a part of the Douglas Robb memorial lectures.
