A jewel at the heart of quantum physics. Buddhists have known this for a long time: the Buddhist mantra, "om mani padme hum," means "the jewel in the heart of the lotus." Physicists are arriving mathematically at a place the monks found a long time ago. (Heh. I note that last sentence is built on a foundation of space and time. Hey, whatever. I am, for now, embodied.) But, this is interesting. It implies that we're manifestations of a universe that knows itself, unconstrained by space and time. Maybe there's an answer to the question, "Why?" And maybe we already know the answer.
