Testing Aids Sufficiency

I know this might seem like jibberish, but it has a purpose.

Final thoughts on the matter are that it doesn’t really mean anything to anyone unless you spend the time to contemplate the stunning wonder of the event horizon of a black hole. What happens when you pass through to the other side? Is it a universe contained within the black hole? Or does time loop back on itself? Or something else. Until we have the capability to send something through and find out somehow what goes on on the other side, there’s just no way of knowing, no matter how much theorising takes place among the centres of learning. Look at it another way: a black hole contains the unlimited possibilities of the infinite. Could that therefore mean that the being we’ve called God is actually a black hole?

It Can’t Be Done

One of my favourite poems as a kid was “It Can’t Be Done” from William J Bennet’s A Book Of Virtues:

The man who misses all the fun
Is he who says, “It can’t be done.”
In solemn pride he stands aloof
And greets each venture with reproof.
Had he the power he’d efface
The history of the human race;
We’d have no radio or motor cars,
No streets lit by electric stars;
No telegraph nor telephone,
We’d linger in the age of stone.
The world would sleep if things were run
By men who say, “It can’t be done.”

So true… I still often say it to myself when I come against obstacles.
