The Problem of Diversity (the Kricher diagram)

In the diagram Kricher arranges eighteen objects in two vertical columns and then determines the number of arregments in which they can be combined. By the same method Kricher further estimates that 50 objects may be arreanged in 1,273,726,838,815,420,339,851,343,083,767,005,515,293,749,454,795, …473,408,000,000,000,000 combinations. From this it will be evident that infinite diversity is possible, for the countless parts of the universe may be related to each other in an incalculable number of ways; and through the various combinations of these limitless subdivisions of being, infinite individuality and infinite variety must inevitably result. Thus it is further evident that life can never become monotonous or exhaust the possibilities of variety.
