"The Universe is vast.
Nothing is more curious than the self-satisfied dogmatism with which mankind at each period of its history cherishes the delusion of the finaLity of its existing modes of knowledge.
Sceptics and believers are all alike. At this moment scientists and sceptics are the leading dogmatists.
Advance in detail is admitted; fundamental novelty is barred.
This dogmatic common sense is the death of philosophic adventure.
The Universe is vast."
- Dialogues of Alfred North Whitehead
