    As a quant who works with excel and enjoys statistics I like and due respect science. I don't respect people though who cannot understand that measurement is not absolute and often times alters what is being measured, so there is much we don't know that could be inverted upon a closer look in the year 3050 when we discover that what is big is actually small from a perspective tending towards the absolute.

    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    Scientists only recently may have created ball lightning, a phenomena with a history of only spectacular anecdotal accounts. I get excited when I think of the things we don't know.

    I'm not dissing science, I like the idea that there's no complete picture though, I like it a lot.

    Sometimes I think that everything is known and the greatest inventions, innovations or discoveries have been made. That's pretty depressing when you think about it. So the existence of mysteries which have, at this point, to be solved is something great to my mind.

    I also am a fan of a lot of "civilisation one" style literature or stories from sci fi or fantasy which are a little like that, the one which stands out the most in my mind is Lord of Light, although its a projection into the distant future of mankind and another planet colonised by the uber mensch future humans depending on how you interpret it.

    There's also lots of fiction which projects to a future post-apocalyptic world in which contemporary or near future technology is rediscovered by survivors as something magic, I know that's the writers trick of illuminating the present day in ways readers havent thought about it and making life brand new again and it sells. However, what if we are already living in that world and dont realise it?

    Aye, that's my point.

    Although I wonder if they created it in lab conditions how they account for its occurence in every non-lab instance you know?
