An emergent property of motion is information. Likewise, so does humor inescapably emerge from the information that motion yields. This makes humor simply an unavoidable inevitability of nature. It can’t be helped. Nature likes a good joke, and motion’s capacity for innovation can’t help but come up with new ones, though always in finite supply. So, to nature’s inevitable emergent sense of humor, there is Love and Hate at Sea, A Book About Wall Partners, which is really a book about big wall climbing and the human relationships involved with accomplishing it, or simply a book about humor; it all depends upon just why you climb in the first place, how you look at human relationships, and what you consider to be funny and the circumstances under which humor’s capacity is best tested. As with all good humor, at the heart of mirth there is always the element of truth.
