        Now, really, how did all this come about—
        not just this planet, but the Universe?
        One thing is certain and beyond all doubt:
        it has no easy secret to disburse.

        If we are to divine a cosmic plan
        discovering an occult cosmogony
        revealing how the whole shebang began,
        science alone will show ontology.

        While comforting it may be to suppose
        that supernatural intelligence
        created all existence and now knows
        the fate of all with cognizance immense,

             Our scientists proceed more reasonably,
             exploring every possibility.
