It's a queer world out there

This came down the BBC pike yesterday afternoon:

Scientist Professor Richard Dawkins has opened a global conference of big thinkers warning that our Universe may be just "too queer" to understand.

"Are there things about the Universe that will be forever beyond our grasp, in principle, ungraspable in any mind, however superior?" he asked.

"Successive generations have come to terms with the increasing queerness of the Universe."

He went on to suggest that humans "invent there own realities" to make sense of it all.

Interesting.
