Quote #10

Valentine: She didn't have the maths, not remotely. She saw what things meant, way ahead, like seeing a picture.
Septimus: This is not science. This is story-telling. (2.7)

Septimus's words imply that science and storytelling are two entirely different things – but putting that statement right after Valentine's makes us question that difference.
