Richard Feynman

American physicist, Nobel Prize winner in 1965.
If you don't like it, go somewhere else, to another universe where the rules are simpler.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The principle of science, the definition, almost, is the following: The test of all knowledge is experiment. Experiment is the sole judge of scientific "truth." But what is the source of knowledge? Where do the laws that are to be tested come from? Experiment, itself, helps to produce these laws, in the sense that it gives us hints. But also needed is imagination to create from these hints the great generalizations--to guess at the wonderful, simple, but very strange patterns beneath them all, and then to experiment toMore Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But the real glory of science is that we can find a way of thinking such that the law is evident.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The shell game that we play ... is technically called 'renormalization'. But no matter how clever the word, it is still what I would call a dippy process! Having to resort to such hocus-pocus has prevented us from proving that the theory of quantum electrodynamics is mathematically self-consistent. It's surprising that the theory still hasn't been proved self-consistent one way or the other by now; I suspect that renormalization is not mathematically legitimate.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All theoretical chemistry is really physics; and all theoretical chemists know it.More Richard Feynman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
