Just six numbers, written and narrated by the author (k drive)

science (multiple universe theory, super strings)

Martin Rees has been Astronomer Royal since 1995.

You can't get away from the black and white of the situation, manouvered or evolved. You will find that there is no point in discussing this with anyone. Everyone believes, in the depths of their very being, one way or the other...

tweaked or not tweaked

You could not hope to convert by discussion so why bother trying. I am the one who crawls out of the Chinese Coal Mine every morning at 5a,m to cook the porridge oats; I get to watch the independent eruptions occuring within the one closed system of the saucepan and so have no problem at all with envisioning the parallel universe scenario - it is nothing but beautiful and natural and right. No tweaking needed.

*Anyone falling into a blackhole encounters the end of time* and I love the term spaghettification.
