An astronomer develops the final photographic plate of an all-sky survey and declares "Now we understand the universe!" A lexicographer finishes defining the ultimate word in the Z's of a dictionary and announces "All problems of language have been solved!" A census-taker records the name of the last citizen and boasts "Our society is complete!" The Human Genome Project computes a DNA sequence and holds a press conference to proclaim "The Book of Life lies open to us!"

Well, it's a wee bit more complex than that....
