I have always had a love of science, I enjoy watching science programmes and reading books on science. I love how it bends my mind out of place, and how many scientific concepts are simply too big and complex to understand. I love that some people can understand it, and if only I tried a bit harder maybe I could too.
I have to admit that I am pretty hopeless at maths, at least technically, but I will dutifully sit through expositions of complex mathematical principles - trying to just hold onto some of it - even though I can’t even really do long division.
I am particularly fascinated by the very big and the very small. Just how big is big, and just how small is small? Obviously the answer is VERY. But it is so bamboozling it makes my head pleasantly fuzzy with uncertainty. If only I could think harder maybe I could comprehend it!
However, the actual engravings started from a different place entirely...
