The beauty of the Universe around us was captured by Albert Einstein’s work on the relation of Space and Time. Largely unknown, however, was Einstein’s avowal of inspiration from another genius, Edinburgh’s great philosopher David Hume. They never met, but are now inseparable in their joint illumination of the Cosmos.
