No other theory or concept ever imagined by man can equal in boldness and audacity this great claim … that all the starry heavens, that every species of life, that every characteristic of reality exists [to create a livable habitat] for mankind…. But most remarkably, given its audacity, it is a claim which is very far from a discredited prescientific myth. In fact, no observation has ever laid the presumption to rest. And today, four centuries after the scientific revolution, the doctrine is again reemerging. In these last decades of the twentieth century, its credibility is being enhanced by discoveries in several branches of fundamental science.
