Richard Feynman was an American physicist who explored new ways of thinking about quantum mechanics and wrote The Meaning of It All and QED.
Quotes by Richard Feynman in Time One
There should be somewhere in the works some kind of principle that uxles only make wuxles, and never vice versa, and [this] would be the thing that makes the whole phenomena of the world seem to go one way. But we have not found this yet.
If you calculated something roughly, it would give a reasonable answer. But if you tried to compute it more accurately, you would find that the correction you thought was going to be small … was in fact very large―in fact, it was infinity!
So when some fool physicist gives a lecture at UCLA in 1983 and says, “This is the way it works, and look at how wonderfully similar the theories are,” it’s not because Nature is really similar; it’s because the physicists have only been able to think of the same damn thing, over and over again.
