Suppose time is a circle, bending back on itself. The world repeats itself, precisely, endlessly.” 
― Alan Lightman, Einstein's Dreams

The universe, just what is it? just what is our habitual universe, with everything from the smallest bug on this planet, to the enormous VY Canis Majoris, in which you could fit 9.3 billion of our suns inside it. Just the mysteries of our universe go vastly beyond that of size and structure.

The universe is filled with the marvellous creation of life and even the mere fact that we are humans who can ask and even answer some of the questions in the universe, is mind blowing. We rather forget that reaching out towards the limits of our human imagination we forget about what we have already found out which in itself is amazing.

Well we once again ask some of the deeper most powerful questions about the universe in the hope of finding out more about this incredible universe and beyond it, with the incredible Alan Lightman.
