  1. The most exhilarating and the scariest thing about building new models to solve problems in theoretical physics is trying not to "break" what we already know in the process, thus rendering our theories useless. One must study not just how a given solution to the cosmic acceleration problem explains cosmic acceleration, but also what it does to the rest of the universe in the process.
