TO THE BEGINNINGS OF TIME

We still try to reach
to the beginnings of time.
Universe! How old you really
are? That's the essential question
being asked since many centuries

The answer, however, depends on
the condition of our sight.
Artificial one. Naturally. Therefore, we're
upgrading glasses of knowledge constantly.
To see more, peer deeper

We've created the pretty famous
cone of time so far,
estimating its age on roughly
fourteen billion years on condition
that none mistake was made

Will we ever accomplish this
task if the cosmos redefines
its boundaries? Is it greed?
Nowise! Rather a natural aftermath
resulting from the Hubble Law.
