Please at least give me a direction! I saw this saying - WHO wrote it?

"We exist to bear witness.
We had to.
The infinite us to see it.
Without the perceiver,
The perceived does not exist.

That gives us leverage.
Don't look until
you get what you want."

1. As best I can tell, it's from the tv show The Big Bang Theory.

I was curious about who wrote it after reading your post, so I googled looking for an attribution.

It looks like it was an end card to an episode of the show, written by perhaps the producer or a writer of the show. I don't know much about the show or this interesting quote, so maybe someone else will have some more information for you.

4. I adore Big Bang - the only sitcom I will watch!

No wonder it just "turned up" in an old notebook - I don't really remember seeing it, but I must have!

Then found out it is also my daughter's favorite.

You'll hate Sheldon, then grow to love him, even while wanting to kick his ass!

10. That sounds like a good plan.

I get along pretty well with most people too. As long as I don't hear too much about their idiotic views.

2. TV Producer Chuck Lorre

 

This is his thing. When you create a TV show broadcast on network TV, one of the things you (as a producer or production company) are entitled to is 1.5s of broadcast at the end of the credits for what is known as a vanity card. Some others you might have seen:


Bad Robot Productions (J.J. Abrams)


Mutant Enemy Productions (Joss Whedon)

There is an entire archive of them you can view here.

Lorre, as creator of number of TV shows for CBS, including The Big Bang Theory, Dharma & Greg, and Two and a Half Men, has spent his entire 20+ year career using his 1.5s to publish his thoughts on a variety of subjects from the mundane to the bizarre. He now has over 400 different published short-essays in the form of vanity cards, all of which can be found on his personal website:

3. Thank you so much! It's been buzzing in my brain -

I wrote it down several years ago, in an old notebook, and rediscovered it the other day.

He should have stuck to poetry!

9. Technically, it's all the missing pieces from the Theory of Everything

 

The TV series Big Bang Theory sneaked a piece of it into their script.

Everything that exists will never be discovered.

Raised on Merritt Island before KSC became KSC? Yep, moi - I am an absolute fan of SF.
