Synopsis: Taylor and Harold are good friends and avid climbers. While climbing one day, they meet a man who it seems might be attempting to climb K2, the world's second-highest peak. Always pushy, Taylor bugs the man for a spot on the team, claiming that he and Harold are good enough. They may be very good, but K2 is a very tough mountain.

Well, in a strange way it was girls.

I used to hide from them in the|library in the fifth grade.

That s when I came across my first|physics textbook explaining...

Einsteins Unified Field Theory.

At the time I thought Id found God.|Okay, Peter, try it now.

-That s got it, Professor.|-Perfect.


Anyway... high school, college,|I dove deeper into physics...

and discovered Einstein had failed|in the face of Quantum Mechanics.

I saw God die almost|before he was born.

Quantum Physics smashed to pieces|the cornerstone of physical science.

-Cause and effect.|-Precisely. There was no answer.
