The world is not magic | Cosmic Variance

The physics professor speaks about quarks and leptons and is asked of what use is all this .Does it have any practical significance ? It helps us to understand how the world works .The world is not magic.It works according to certain rules .We never reach a point,while exploring the world, when the world becomes an ineffable mystery .All we can do is to point to the long line of formerly mysterious things we are now able to make sense out of .There is every reason to believe that these successes will continue .A least there is no reason for believing that they will stop. Wonderful. This quest is what gives meaning to our apparently inane activities .
