“All around us are many worlds; those that we can see are the most common, but there are those that surprise us, those that avoid all but the most methodical of inspection. They spin about their center in a never-ending cycle, set to a song that began long before we learned to hear it, and that will end long after we have stopped listening.”– from 12 Musings on the Nature of the Wheel
