So hard, yet so simple

In the beginning Security was created. This had made many people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly how to find and how to patch every Security hole, computing as we know it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

It is known that there are an infinite number of programs, simply because there is an infinite amount of code for them to be in. However, not every one of them contains security flaws. Therefore, there must be a finite number of security flaws. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average security flaw density of all the programs in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the number of security flaws of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any security flaws you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.
