Physicist Alan Guth, seen here circa the 1970’s, around the same time he made his “spectacular realization” — that the reason why "the heavens look uniform from pole to pole and not like a jagged, warped mess" was because of "cosmic inflation" — the swelling of the universe immediately after the Big Bang, at speeds faster than light.  Now, radio astronomers have discovered gravitational waves, dating back to when the universe was "roughly a trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second old" that appear to have proven Guth’s theory.
Mind blown.  Also, I’m drinking Coke from now on.

we have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. we have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. it is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, i think, to be an organ and a blade. but, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human. we make horrible mistakes. it’s how we learn. we breathe love. it’s how we learn. and it is inevitable.
