The Universe and I

Though I am only a speck in the universe, among an infinitude of specks, both unimaginably larger and unimaginably smaller than I, it is also true that I am consciously at the center of the universe, that the universe stretches out from me like a sphere that has no possible circumference.  This paradox is irreducible.  The impossibility of both science and theology lies in their attempts, albeit in opposite directions, to resolve it.
