Questions, Theories, and Mysteries

"There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened."
- Douglas Adams (1952 - 2001)

The quote I'm reminded of by this picture is from Feynman (in The Value of Science), quoting in turn a Buddhist proverb he learned in Hawaii: "To every man is given the key to the gates of heaven; the same key opens the gates of hell."
