Now, I'll be the first to admit that the Paco gene pool hasn't produced, and isn't likely to produce, any Nobel laureates. I'm probably a good representative sample of the tribe when it comes to the size and quality of thought-box that might be said to serve as a sort of mean or possibly mode of Pacos en masse. Still, although I can't really wrap my headpiece around all the cogs and wheels of higher science, I do manage to enjoy some of the general themes, in the same way that an uneducated person might admire a piece of abstract art without knowing what it's supposed to mean (if anything), or, since we're talkin' about Pacos, maybe a more appropriate metaphor would be of a dog enjoying a sunset.
Here are two articles that grabbed my interest, without leaving me with a genuinely fuller understanding of how it all works (I am drawn to such things pretty much as a pack rat is drawn to a shiny tin can).
"A 'Mirror Image' of Our Universe Existed Before The Big Bang".
"20 Things You Didn't Know About... Time".
