Why is there a universe, why evolution, why are we here, and who made it all? These are questions that people have asked themselves since they have had enough nous to do so, so in other words for a long time. Every answer to these questions is correct if it results in a meaning, in other words unearths a master plan with which one can calm oneself. The answer that "it is the way it is" is not enough for most people.

Effects of surprise

The new generation of quantum mechanics scientists now asserted that the lowest level of the cosmos and the world, the subatomic level, did not fit into a master plan. What happens there cannot be planned and is therefore not predictable. A surprise lurks at every corner in this most fundamental of all worlds. The researchers who recognised that were initially annoyed themselves. In 1915, Max Born wrote to Albert Einstein, furious in the face of the constantly changing world opening up before him: "... the quanta are a hopeless mess!" Hopeless - for good German researchers, that also meant: unpredictable. But soon Born and other researchers in quantum mechanics coolly confirmed: the world consists of probabilities. Possibilities. Our knowledge is not static. We live with surprises, and we move hand over hand from one surprise to the next. Nothing is fixed, settled, eternal. All that we can do is get used to the idea that we shall encounter something new at every corner. That is a great deal of work. But nothing for eternity.

A world collapsed, quite evidently. The scientists had shattered the old image of God, the idea of genesis being completed in the space of a week for example, and had made a laughing stock of it. But most of them had merely replaced the firm belief in a higher purpose through a higher being by belief in the firm predictability of the world.
