Vacuum

Despite the endless quirks to see
there isn’t much to ken
the universe will always be
and yes, it’s always been

no theory will explain the facts
or grasp the massive span
of wonder in these starry tracts
unknowable to man.

It is what it is although it sounds better the way you said it! :)

indeed
it is quite propsterous in my beliefe that we look at something billions of light years away and discern the history of time. i have heard tale of wise men who could imagine a stick with only one end.
science, it seems, falls short

I do like this! I feel the more we learn and understand everything the more prosperous we become.
