Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.
Self-defence is Nature's eldest law.
One of the reasons the doctors gave for hospitalizing me against my will was that I was 'gravely disabled.' To support this view, they wrote in my chart that I was unable to do my Yale Law School homework. I wondered what that meant about much of the rest of New Haven.

Leonardo da Vinci
