Our Universe, the one that human beings believe to be over 13 billion years old (in earth years), is but only one in an infinite many Universes -- called a "multi-verse" -- which is constantly expanding as it did with the creation of our own Universe (which itself is expanding).
The Multi-verse was created by a superior entity that human beings call "God". That's a human "fact". The Multi-verse is so large and was created so long ago that human minds can only comprehend it as "always being".
The various universes within the Multiverse are sometimes called "parallel universes", and each one comprises everything that humans believe can exist in the entirety of space, time, matter, and energy -- as well as the physical laws and constants that describe them.
In their quest for knowledge, even if human beings were to survive and evolve another trillion years, they would never learn or understand the Multi-verse's secrets.
There is also another dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge.
This is the dimension of imagination, where a handful of human beings believe that the Earth is only 8,000 years old, and many are the ones who make the tax laws, determine social polices, and govern within the Republican Party of America.
These unenlightened humans, those who slither the halls in the bowls of Congress and who live in a world totally alien to most other humans, control the daily lives of 312 million innocent human beings in the United States of America in the Earth year 2013.
These unenlightened humans travel through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination, fantasy and folly.
These unenlightened humans, who call themselves the Tea Party, exist in a very tiny part of the Multi-verse, where they indulge themselves with their insane fantasies and grand visions of what they call "fiscal reality", but what the vast majority of us call the Twilight Zone.
