• The world, and whatever that be which we call the heavens, by the vault of which all things are enclosed, we must conceive to be a deity, to be eternal, without bounds, neither created nor subject at any time to destruction. To inquire what is beyond it is no concern of man; nor can the human mind form any conjecture concerning it.

    Pliny the Elder (2015). “Delphi Complete Works of Pliny the Elder (Illustrated)”, p.1, Delphi Classics
