  • Ever since the dawn of civilization, people have not been content to see events as unconnected and inexplicable. They have craved an understanding of the underlying order in the world.

And our goal is nothing less than a complete description of the universe we live in.
    (Stephen Hawking, "A Brief History of Time")

    (Stephen Hawking, "A Brief History of Time")

    (Stephen Hawking, "A Brief History of Time")
