alea iacta esto

The Mind Seeks Explanation

The mind seeks explanation. since the universe extends
Forever out beyond those ramparts at which our world ends,
The mind forever yearns to peer into infinity,
To project beyond and outside of itself, and there soar free.

– Lucretius, The Nature of Things, translated by A.E. Stallings
