- Are the laws of physics absolute and universal?
- But could it not be that this is just a hang-over of the philosophical monism of the past, the inertial mind sticking to the old in one manner or the other?
- And who can answer such a question when we don’t know their origin, notwithstanding the mighty Stephen Hawking?

- In fact, the question could be, can science really talk anything about it?
Its success, an astounding success in one area does not entitle him to speak of things which do not fall in his domain. Einstein speaking of religion is quite equivalent to Tagore speaking of science—and the fact is, they both did it. In the Brief History of Time we have the poser, if the singularity of the Big Bang disappears in the formulation of the imaginary time, then what need of God? Universe had always been there and will continue to be there.
