It just goes on, with its edge as unknown as the bottom of the bottomless sea

This universe has been described by many, but it just goes on, with its edge as unknown as the bottom of the bottomless sea of the other idea – just as mysterious, just as awe-inspiring, and just as incomplete as the poetic pictures that came before.

But see that the imagination of nature is far, far greater than the imagination of man. No one who did not have some inkling of this through observation could ever have imagined such a marvel as nature is.
