"Quantum physicists now say the universe is aware. It’s watching us watch it. And the Big Bang, according to a healthy consensus, is happening right now. My point? The most fundamental stuff we think we know—the bedrock of what is—keeps getting blasted away. Modernity keeps saying, “Oops.” Just when we think we have some basic traction, that we know something about ourselves and the big blurry world, a new claim comes along and liquifies the ground we’re standing on. To me, that whole operation is the realm of fiction. I like stories that dramatize what we do not know—and characters who are caught up in their own wonder."
