John Archibald Wheeler Quote

The universe came into being in a big bang, before which, Einstein's theory instructs us, there was no before. Not only particles and fields of force had to come into being at the big bang, but the laws of physics themselves, and this by a process as higgledy-piggledy as genetic mutation or the second law of thermodynamics.
