'Sir Bernard describes an extraordinary, almost bizarre event, at a profound moment of cosmic time, a millisecond from time zero itself - an event where neither logic nor physical circumstances applied; a brief flash of time in the centre of immensities during which the infinities and infinitesimals of mathematics enclosed a variety of expanding universes. Paradoxically, our measurements of this moment and its aftermath now seem to define only one universe - which had to be that particular universe if it was ever to be known and comprehended by intelligent beings.'
