For all I've ranted on about models needing to meet, at least, the
physical constraints of the universe we dwell within, here's a sobering
thought for me-
"Nature has been known to include surprise endings," Dr. Thomas K.
Hemmick, a professor of experimental physics at the State University of
New York at Stony Brook, said.
Hemmick said this in an article about how experiments at the Brookhaven
National Laboratory have created the hottest, densest matter ever
observed, recreating conditions a fraction of a second after the birth
of the universe.
What happened in that fraction of second before this experiment's
conditions? What happened a fraction of a second before culture, before
the meme, wherever it is? How can we reach that point experimentally,
as physics has with particle accelerators?
Nature, as far as people go too, has been known to include surprise
