Currently reading Carlo Rovelli's book Reality is Not What It Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity as well as re-reading Frank Hebert's Dune (wanted to do that before the movie comes out). There was something that jumped out at me as I happened to be reading Dune at night and then about the quest for quantum gravity in the morning:
"What senses do we lack that we cannot see or hear another world all around us?" - Frank Hebert Dune
"There is a phenomenon that might not be reducible to the Standard Model [of quantum field theory]; 'dark matter.'" - Carlo Rovelli Reality is Not What It Seems
My mind works differently than most and I was amused by the thought the two quotes were somehow related. I was even more amused when I wondered if the person who solves the riddle of dark matter should be declared the Kwisatz Haderach (Dune fans will get the reference).
Maybe it's just me.
