"Big Bang to Little Swoosh"


I found Max Tegmark's April 11, 2014 New York Times essay about the recent announcement "of the discovery of cosmology's holy grail: telltale signature ripples in the very fabric of space generated as it 'inflated' during our cosmic origins," both humbling and exhilarating.

It's hard to be serious about things when you consider your lifespan and concerns against the denominator of those past, present, and yet to come.
