Ourobori for March 31, 2010

I. Ouroboros, as the Greeks called the snake that eats its tail, has from ancient times been a symbol of cosmic unity and self-sufficiency. Dr. Hossaini says his mission here is to reverse what he calls the “fractionalizing of culture” that began with modern science, industry and art. —NYT, review of "Ouroboros: The History of the Universe"

II. And this: "The culprit may be the Higgs boson particle traveling back in time to destroy itself."

Holger Bech Nielsen: "It would look as if the future has an influence on what happens today or yesterday."
