Reflection for the Week - March 25

In science there can be a false notion of ultimate symmetry – unification – or some grand theory that explains everything. Doesn’t exist. We’re too exposed to the unknown. And asymmetry is essential to the planet and universe too. Thus, there are no metanarratives. Being in tension about these matters can be exciting, instead of depressing. The quest for light is never over and the pursuit gets more interesting all the time. Pleasantly terrified, I press on.
