To be a catalyst is the ambition most appropriate for those who see the world as being in constant change, and who, without thinking that they control it, wish to influence its direction - Theodore Zeldin

Science

Quote 2893

The successful [scientist] thinks like a poet but works like a bookkeeper - E. O. Wilson http://j.mp/K67vKt

Quote 2892

The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane - Nicola Tesla

Quote 2891

The scientifically significant physical effect may be defined as that which can be regularly reproduced by anyone who carries out the appropriate experiment in the way prescribed - Karl Popper (1968) The Logic of Scientific Discovery

Quote 2890

Science is all metaphor - Timothy Leary

Quote 2888

Science and religion are not at odds. Science is simply too young to understand - Dan Brown

Quote 2887

It is a mistake to believe that a science consists in nothing but conclusively proved propositions, and it is unjust to demand that it should. It is a demand only made by those who feel a craving for authority in some form and a need to replace the religious catechism by something else, even if it be a scientific one - Sigmund Freud

Quote 2886

By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox - Galileo Galilei

On Systems

So are we all really being watched over by "machines of loving grace"? If you've never seen the documentaries by Adam Curtis, full as they are of quirky and strangely compelling arguments, patterns and links between the seemingly unlinked, then sit back, ingest a huge pinch of salt, take it all in and think for yourself.
