Aurino, it IS beautiful! Theoretical physics (for example) probes into not just the theory of everything, but the entire unkown of the universe! Think about it! We can't DO anything with the knowledge of black holes, or the edge of the universe, or where the universe began - or where it will end! Theoretical physics is the product of man's quest for understanding of everything bigger than us.
It is to probe for cosmic answers, play with religion and temper it with our understanding of what is reality. We can't go warp speed, but the idea is fascinating. We'll NEVER EVER be near enough to a black hole to probe it - but that's not the point - is it? It's the IDEA that captures us. It's conquering the fear of the unknown and radically changing the way we see reality. Reality is not just our lives. It encompases everything we can possibly comprehend.
It's a shadow of a glimmer of what God must see - and control.
Aurino, physics is not neutral. It is a study of something astronomicaly passionate. But it, like poetry, is dead and cold to those who choose not to understand it. The study of the unknown can NEVER be dispassionate.
I hereby end my epistle.
