There is a wonderful place of balance between science and imagination, not unrelated to the balance between thinking and feeling, that very few people even know exists. It isn't a place where a person is free to create fantasy, but rather where one is able to fully envision and appreciate the wondrous lessons that science is teaching us about the cosmos.

"It's not so much that there's something strange about time, the thing that's strange is what's going on inside time. We will first understand how simple the universe is when we recognize how strange time is."
—J. A. Wheeler
