A fictional journal, this is a small story about a plasma physicist
who later in life begins a new career as a philosopher of science.
He is interested in Metaphysics, which involves both Cosmology
(the nature of the universe) and Ontology (the nature of being).
On a pilgrimage, this philosopher walks down the paths of the

the Lord of the Universe. He can discern the *continuum* of
ideas in this quest; and, in tandem, he sees similar ideas in
He believes this historical "intuition" about the universe might
be found in the new data brought forth by modern scientific
efforts about the world in which we live, whether the far reaches
of the Cosmos or the close knowledge of the Earth, itself.
