To be Completed Tomorrow

The great powers of the universe are called gods when our knowledge is small. As knowledge grows, the area of life strictly confined to the works of the gods changes and grows smaller, but it is never reduced to nothing: the more we know, the more we realize how little we know.

The cosmos becomes ever stranger the more we know about it. Dark Matter is as real right now as Baron Samedi with his black top hat... and if we finally discover Higg's Boson, it will be surprised and ask us if we have seen his aunt.
