We lose something. This is the work of fiction. This is not a documentary. I mean it's not. The opera is above all poetry when and people go to Einstein. They're not going to walk away understanding the biography of no. They wanted the biography of nature. Physics they won't know but what they will see. Aw whether they They will see some of the things that I thought about which Bob Lawson was able to translate into images. I look forward and Philip lost. I thank you very much for coming in today.
