Thank you for teaching us how little we know about everything.
Without you, brave science, we would have no idea that most of the universe (almost 96% of it) is made of stuff that’s invisible to–and immeasurable by–our most sensitive and precise technologies… and that the other 4% (or so) is made up of tiny particles (of uncertain construction) that interact with one another (even over great distances) by an undisclosed mechanism operating, apparently, at the same speed as light… which, as you have made clear, is possessed of an existentially ambiguous nature and moves at the rate it does for reasons known to itself alone.
With each passing year, we learn more, only to realise that we know less.
Is it too much to hope that we may eventually understand that we know nothing?
Now that would really be something.
P.S. – Maybe the universe frustrates our best efforts to comprehend it because we’re always trying to take it apart in order to understand it…
(just food for thought… no pressure…)
