    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 endings.
