'It said in the paper that 90% of the universe went missing this morning'
 90% of the universe is made up of what’s known as ‘dark matter’. It is inferred from the gravitational effects exerted on visible matter in a number of different ways that all support its existence, yet does not give off electromagnetic radiation that would allow us to detect it in the manner of the visible matter.


At the time of writing, it is still not clear what comprises dark matter, but there is a certain irony in the fact that on the day Marillion announced the innovative release of the album to P2P sites, there was the first testing of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, which is designed to answer some fundamental questions about the nature of matter, and which may shed some light on exactly where dark matter comes from.

'Dizzy in the head'
A quote from I Can't Explain by The Who (also later appropriated by The Cult for Lil Devil, but I suspect it's less lightly that h is into magnificently dumb AC/DC rip offs.) Also a reference to h’s first wife, Sue, AKA Dizzy Spell.
