ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the essence of understanding the fundamental objects that shape the universe to gain new insights into the complexity of nature. Physics professor Lawrence Krauss believes in the inflationary cosmology theory which states that the universe expanded very quickly and that the universe could have once been in a region that was very small. Another physics professor Leonard Susskind considers the perfect reductionist view of nature of studying smaller things.
