Six Numbers and Three Words

“Just six numbers determine the essential features of the physical cosmos. If any one of them were untuned there would be no stars and no life.” Before you speak the waves part a part of you into sparkles into particles of light. Before you speak the language of light let there be words. Before you measure or mistake what you see when your heart is full and breaking with a miracle; some thing need to be believed to be seen and the meaning is never any greater than the three words: I love you.
