When a thaumic experiment goes adrift, the wizards of Unseen
University find that they've accidentally created a new universe.
Within it is a planet that they call Roundworld, an extraordinary
place where neither magic nor common sense seems to stand
a chance against logic. This universe is, of course the one
we Earthlings call home.
Pratchett's The Science of Discworld is an interesting
read, comparing the fictional universe fans of the series
are familiar with to our own. Now

are some great moments to be had within the footnotes. For
example one passage reads: "Most of the atoms from which you
are made must have come into being inside a star. As Joni
Mitchell sang at Woodstock: 'We are Stardust'". The footnote
to this read: "Ask Mummy or Daddy if you have no idea what
we're talking about".
not an exact science, this book raises some interesting points
about the way our universe came into existence.
