And this may be just one of many universes — what cosmologists, some more skeptically than others, have named the multiverse.

Despite the long string of demotions, we remain confident, out here on the edge of nowhere, that our band of primates has what it takes to figure out the cosmos — what the writer Timothy Ferris called “the whole shebang.” New particles may yet be discovered, and even new laws.

The 8 Best Monthly Fashion Subscriptions that Deliver to Your Door

When it comes to subscription services, odds are you’re aware of the seemingly endless array that fall into the beauty and lifestyle realm (BirchBox for beauty samples, BarkBox for doggie treats, and HelloFlo for that-time-of-the-month essentials.) However, we’ve been seeing a serious influx of fashion-based monthly services lately, all of which seem focus more on the element of surprise—new presents every month!—and the idea of small luxuries.
