White Group Mathematics's insight:
"All of our observations find a complete symmetry between matter and antimatter, which is why the universe should not actually exist"

I reckon the search for asymmetry continues. Or might there be an explanation bordering on the incredulous which properly accounts for our existence? A set of answers way beyond what Science can ever strive to uncover? Peace.

Recently I got in touch with him asking if he would be interested to contribute a guest article for my main site. He generously obliged, and subsequently penned this piece (Ladders Go Both Ways ) which implores one to seriously question the very notion of education and what it really means to be educated in schools these days. Admittedly I have been quite inspired afterwards, and hopefully you will feel the same too. Peace.
