Describe the universe in 15 words

  1. Nov 26, 2005 #1
    Id like to see how everyone here would describe the universe - your personal view of it.
    But instead of giant essays, try to restrict it to a sentence with a maximum of 15 words.

    *and perhaps in the end we can reach an agreement as to what is the best description
