    believing in its ultimate place

    Please make the following in bold clear for me.

    One of my fondest childhood pursuits was stargazing..... I sat night after night on our front lawn with my telescope marveling, wondering, and dreaming. The final acknowledgment goes to our universe, believing in its ultimate place in what we can become.

    Thank you.

    re: believing in its ultimate place

    Dear Unpakwon:

    The final acknowledgment goes to our universe, believing in its ultimate place in what we can become.

    This sounds like a grand thought badly expressed. I can't quite work out who is doing the believing, among other things. What is the passage taken from?

    re: believing in its ultimate place

    I agree with Pyoung. It is no wonder you don't understand it. It seems to be the universe that is doing the believing.

    It's from the "Acknowledgments" of a book. The quote is the last part of the "acknowledgments."
