Arthur Eddington

English astrophysicist, a foreign member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR
The universe will finally become a ball of radiation, becoming more and more rarified and passing into longer and longer wave-lengths. The longest waves of radiation are Hertzian waves of the kind used in broadcasting. About every 1500 million years this ball of radio waves will double in diameter; and it will go on expanding in geometrical progression for ever. Perhaps then I may describe the end of the physical world as-one stupendous broadcast.More Arthur Eddington quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The physical world is entirely abstract and without actuality apart from its linkage to consciousness.More Arthur Eddington quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

If I let my fingers wander idly over the keys of a typewriter it might happen that my screed made an intelligible sentence. If an army of monkeys were strumming on typewriters they might write all the books in the British Museum. The chance of their doing so is decidedly more favourable than the chance of the molecules returning to one half of the vessel.More Arthur Eddington quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about 'and'.More Arthur Eddington quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
