we don't even fully understand 4% yet

of what makes up the entire universe. we are such infants.

i love this quote: "Scientists were also able to conclude that the universe is composed of about 4 percent real matter, about 23 percent dark matter, and about 73 percent dark energy. Nobody actually nows (sic) what dark matter or dark energy are, however."

guess we all still have a lot to learn. for entire article see

Re: we don't even fully understand 4% yet

I think we need to consult with numerologists. This 4% thing is too, too coincidental. For example, as many will attest, I only use 4% of my brain.

I am retired.
And I don't care how big your truck is."
