Quote of the day...
Sean remembered Karl Schwarzshild's notes he was carrying. "Could I suggest calling it 'General Relativity and the Field Theory'?"
"Good. Catchy. How does it end?" asked Einstein.
"Like all generals' theories - in a big bang."
"Nein, nein. No big bang. I vant grand epic version of zer kosmos. It might start mit ein big bang promotional trailer, but I prefer a slow, agonising ending to zer universe. Due to consumption. Much more zer melodrammatic."
"That plot has been flogged a bit in opera, hasn't it?"
"You zink vee need zomzing new?"
"How about 'onwards forever'?"
"A bit socialistic. Not really in vogue. "
