7. "... Evren, eski küçük oyunlarin sahnelenemeyecegi kadar büyük. Sahnenin evrensel büyüklügüne olaylarin, islerin ve eylemlerin evrensel genisligi uymali. Yoksa yaniliyor muyum? Yildizlar çaginda da sevi olacak, kiskançlik, alçaklik ,büyüklük, cimrilik... Evet, akan bir suda her nokta kendine göre devinir. Kendi istegine göre gittigini sanir. Ama bütün noktalar ayni yere dogru akip giderler. Insanlar da böyle. Gündelik islere yapisip kalabilirler, ya da kendilerini tutkulara birakabilirler.

Yildizlara giden insanin iyiligini yigitligini, gücünü güçsüzlügünü hangi yontuda taslastiracagim? Bilginin sakin gücünü, coskunun atakligini ve duygusalligi, isikli melankolisini hep birden tasa nasil geçirmeli ? Sanat, sen bazen ne kadar güçsüzsün!Evrenin Türküsü - G. Altov - V. Juravleva sf. 137"
