Main Question or Discussion Point
Due to a peculiar combination of events, I've been thinking about human nature and the nature of scientific inquiry... a scary thought. For example, how does a scientist answer the question 'why is the universe exactly the size it is [feel free to insert the gravitational constant, speed of light, or alpha to taste]? Of course, being a scientist, your initial reaction is 'what size did you have in mind?' And the inquisitor immediately replies 'You call yourself a scientist and you don't even know how big the universe is?'
