In this very room, 70% of what “is” is “Dark Energy.” Another 25% is made up of various forms of Dark Matter – meaning, I see and experience only about 5% of what is.

Knowing me, that figure seems awfully optimistic.

I don’t know about you, but we seem to act a bit too big for our britches – for a species that knows it knows so little.
