Abstract
The recent developments of Mathematical Physics have brought very new ideas about the nature of space . I will argue that we have to mix the methods of noncommutative geometry of Alain Connes with the prophetic views of Grothendieck about the so-called motives and their motivic Galois group .<br> The dream of a &quot;cosmic Galois group&quot; may soon become an established reality .<br> &nbsp;
