"Are you pessimistic?" I asked the physicist.

"In what way?" he replied.

"For you, is the glass half full or half empty?" I inquired.

"That depends on scale," the physicist answered. "On a quantum level, the glass simply has a fifty-fifty probability of fullness or emptiness. On a macroscopic scale, it’s impossible to accurately determine the capacity volumetrically until we can properly describe its shape."

"What about the middle range?" I persisted.

The physicist smiled. "I'd rather think of the universe as half empty," he said. "It's more interesting to ask where the water went than where it came from."
