All the measurements in the world do not balance one theorem by which the science of eternal truths is actually advanced. March 14, 1824. On Mathematics. As quoted in Carl Friedrich Gauss: Titan of Science (1955) by Guy Waldo Dunnington. p. 360.

One may wonder, What came before the Big Bang? If space-time did not exist then, how could everything appear from nothing? . . . Explaining this initial singularity —where and when it all began—still remains the most intractable problem of modern cosmology, science and philosophy in general. ~ Andrei Linde: I might add – will always remain so, never to be ‘solved’!
An equation means nothing to me unless it expresses a thought of God. S. Ramanujan!
Physicists are more like avant-garde composers, willing to bend traditional rules and brush the edge of acceptability in the search for solutions. Mathematicians are more like classical composers, typically working within a much tighter framework, reluctant to go to the next step until all previous ones have been established with due rigor. Each approach has its advantages as well as drawbacks; each provides a unique outlet for creative discovery. Like modern and classical music, it’s not that one approach is right and the other wrong – the methods one chooses to use are largely a matter of taste and training. ~ Brian Greene!
If supersymmetry is to make touch with reality, not only its 'breaking' needs to be demonstrated, but a mathematically harder hurdle and philosophically deeper matter must be met: and that is to show that a solution to the kappa symmetry algebraic equation:
