„We've tended in our cosmologies to make things familiar. Despite all our best efforts, we've not been very inventive.“

—  Carl Sagan American astrophysicist, cosmologist, author and science educator 1934 - 1996
Context: We've tended in our cosmologies to make things familiar. Despite all our best efforts, we've not been very inventive. In the West, Heaven is placid and fluffy, and Hell is like the inside of a volcano. In many stories, both realms are governed by dominance hierarchies headed by gods or devils. Monotheists talked about the king of kings. In every culture we imagined something like our own political system running the Universe. Few found the similarity suspicious. p. 46
