One needs to understand a fundamental
truth here and it is this : there will always
be mysteries in science. Man will never unlock
every single secret of the Universe. When finally
what constitutes the three darks - energy, matter,
flow - has been solved, it will only be a matter of time
before something else crops up. So physicists should not
be disheartened at this. After all it would be a rather boring
world if we knew everything. We need to be patient and realise
what we are up against : an expanding Universe which has always
existed even if once it was only composed of energy and not matter
and us, a rather young species with a tiny mammalian brain that thinks
it can unravel all the mysteries of the Cosmos it lives in though it will carry
on long after we have ceased to exist when the Sun implodes five billion years
from now. We are in the library. We know what some of the books say but there is
still so much to learn. We may not have enough time to read them all but must press on
