Chapter
Part of the Springer Tracts in Modern Physics book series (STMP, volume 233)

As humans, we aspire to reach up to the heavens. It is our unquenchable human nature. An old fable illustrates the point: Jack and the Beanstalk. It is simply impossible for Jack not to climb the Beanstalk, when it stands in front of him, extending all the way up, to beyond the clouds.
