"When the universe was not so out of whack as it is today,
and all the stars were lined up in their proper places, you could
easily count them from left to right, or top to bottom, and the larger and bluer ones were set apart, and the smaller yellowing
types pushed off to the corners as bodies of a lower grade..."

Stanislaw Lem, "Cyberiad"
