    M81 (NGC 3031 or Bode's Galaxy). M81 looks sharp in this composite image from the Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes and the Galaxy Evolution Explorer. M81 is a "grand design" spiral galaxy, which means its arms curl all the way down into its center. It is located about 12 mly away in the Ursa Major constellation and is one of the brightest galaxies that can be seen from Earth through telescopes. Its nucleus harbors a supermassive black hole.

A káosz gyermekei vagyunk, és a változás mélystruktúrája a felbomlás. Lényegében nincs semmi más, csak a bomlás és a káosz feltartóztathatatlan áradata. Célnak nyoma sincs; semmi nem maradt ezen az irányultságon kívül. Ha tárgyilagosan pillantunk az univerzum mélyébe, kénytelenek vagyunk elfogadni ezt a kilátástalanságot. Peter Atkins
