Plusquote: Happening

“For a moment, nothing happened. Then, after a second or so, nothing continued to happen”.
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

When scientists of the most esoteric kind finally come to wrap their heads around Einstein’s “Time is that not everything happens at once” in a provable way (errm, would like to have it in a falsifyable way but how would that happen? [no pun intended when typing but now it’s there…]), i.e., to the insight that the most fundamental something that happens in the universe, underpinning and giving rise to space, time, and matter [overOxfordian?], is Information,
this Information thing may wrap up the second quote, and the official quote of the day may be what was before Information — apologies that there is no clue in there how nothing happening suddenly gave rise to Information of why it wanted to / had to do so.
Both of the latter cases to be reflected on Sloterdijk’s understanding of the Ultimate Insurance Provider sphere-wrapping The Universe And Everything.
