Can science uncover the origin of everything?
I started thinking about this when I came across this quote by Einstein:
“It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure.”
And then I found this talk about the boundaries between science and philosophy when it comes to explaining the universe and nothingness:
So what do you think? Can science satisfy our craving for knowledge about our origins? Or would it be too dry? Do we need to hang on to a part of mystery?
