Science. The big ideas, the big questions: time, space, consciousness. Grand theories of this, that and the other. Her vast reach into our physical and mental spaces outstrip our capacity to fully experience her universe by orders of magnitude.

She is a contemporary sublime that crushes the vista from a Caspar David Friedrich to dust, and at which we can only squint through a glass darkly as she writhes in and out of our perception and understanding. In her wake, in her eddies and her tides, we turn and spin.
