The article presents the author's views about the guiding philosophy among computing researchers. The author says that the sort of commonsense knowledge that humans have is still missing from computers. The author further says that humans see associations and patterns effortlessly, but on the other hand, everything needs to be spelled out for computers.

    We settle a long-standing open question, namely whether it is possible to sort a sequence of n elements stably (i.e., preserving the original relative order of the equal elements), using O(1) auxiliary space and performing O(n log n) comparisons and O(n) data moves. Munro and Raman stated this...
