               “Something unknown is doing we don’t know what,”
               Said Arthur Eddington, astronomer,
               As he gazed out upon the vasty glut
               Of distant galaxies we now infer
               Are parts of multiverses yet unseen
               Beyond the scope of all infinitude
               Where space and time amazingly careen,
               Though our technology cannot intrude.

               For all we know, there’s much we never will,
               Because the cosmos far exceeds our scope,
               Yet human curiosity may still
               Surmise and what we cannot grasp may grope
               In our imaginations to conceive:
               The most compelling story to believe.
