Headfuck Diagrams from Respectable Science Books: Part 1.

From The Goldilocks Enigma by Paul Davies, page 243.


  1. The question is what does the area that surrounds the ellipses represent in terms of observation?

    To paraphrase Dick Cheney - and may I be forgiven for doing so - "I know what I see, I know what I can't see, but I don't know what I can't see, I can't see.'

    We know we can't see dark matter, but know it's there - but there is stuff beyond the bounds of our imagination that also exists.

  2. Indeed. I read it differently, though. Maybe I saw too many Venn diagrams back in school, but to me that implied that 'what can be observed' is part of 'what could exist, but doesn't'.

    Work that one out!
