Well worded Gerald,

All of `nature' is said to be ruled by gravitation and the
unified e.m/nuclear forces. Yet all statements - as opposed to
observations - in our text books, apart from mathematical
matches or approximations, turn out to be empty circular
arguments or mere opinion.

I think the gist is this: "We can describe what happens quite
accurately and we think we understand. But, really, we do not.
The invisible influences of gravitation and electromagnetic
fields remain magic; describable, but nevertheless implacable,
non-human, alien magic." - written by Prof B K Ridley, with
equal flair.


Cheers
