Description:
Mathematical equation written in white on black background.

Label Text:
"This equation may not look beautiful. Its beauty lies in its rigidity—once its ingredients are specified, its structure is pretty well fixed by conditions of mathematical consistency. Leave out one line, or just change a minus sign to a plus sign and the whole thing would become inconsistent." - Steven Weinberg
