You've confused me. What's the quote about, what's its context and how's the book?

The quote is in the context of and about the limited nature of our understanding of the universe.

So even after 6000 years of trying, we haven't got our heads round it.

The book was pretty good, though somewhat controversial. Ages since I read it though - I found the quote which I'd e-mailed to myself while clearing out old e-mails.
