"Once, the heavenly spheres were moved by magic and by the angels of elusive gods. To the rational and sane of enlightened times - a fairytale. And yet this universe appears to the inquisitive mind still so enigmatic, so full of the very mystery which breathed life and beauty into our earliest imagination, that man's greatest tragedy would be to dull our senses and not still, despite the limits of our Earthbound minds, seek to grasp the nature of that which brought us forth."
