physics

It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature.More [10/17/2011 03:10:27]
I am now convinced that theoretical physics is actually philosophy.More [10/19/2011 04:10:42]
Soon I knew the craft of experimental physics was beyond me - it was the sublime quality of patience - patience in accumulating data, patience with recalcitrant equipment - which I sadly lacked.More [06/08/2012 06:06:52]
The creation of Physics is the shared heritage of all mankind. East and West, North and South have equally participated in it.More [06/08/2012 06:06:57]
What's appealing to me is someone who loves who they are and if they are dorky and into physics or maths, so be it.More [08/28/2012 01:08:35]
Contrary to the physics is the nature of the human rumors,
Where fly in the ointment has more weight than drums of honey.More [07/22/2016 08:07:16]
That attitude does not exist so much today, but in those days there was a very sharp distinction between basic physics and applied physics. Columbia did not deal with applied physics.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Most people have no concept of how an automatic transmission works, yet they know how to drive a car. You don't have to study physics to understand the laws of motion to drive a car. You don't have to understand any of this stuff to use Macintosh.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
If I want to understand the laws of physics I have to first believe what I read about physics. I have to have faith in what I read.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
For more than 200 years, materialists have promised that science will eventually explain everything in terms of physics and chemistry. Believers are sustained by the faith that scientific discoveries will justify their beliefs.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I received my undergraduate degree in engineering in 1939 and a Master of Science degree in mathematical physics in 1941 at Steven Institute of Technology.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
My father was on the faculty in the Chemistry Department of Harvard University my mother had one year of graduate work in physics before her marriage.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
They can shout down the head of the physics department at Cal Tech.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The object of pure physics is the unfolding of the laws of the intelligible world the object of pure mathematics that of unfolding the laws of human intelligence.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
When I entered medical physics in 1958 there were fewer than 100 in the U.S. and I could see many opportunities to apply my knowledge of nuclear physics.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The growth of technology is such that it is not possible today for a nuclear physicist to switch into medical physics without training. The field is now much more technical. More training is needed to do the job.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Medical physics is an applied area of physics.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Most medical physicists work in the physics of radiation oncology making sure that the desired dose is given to the cancer and the dose to normal tissues are minimized.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I was the Chair of the first department of medical physics in a medical school in the U.S.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I have devoted much time and energy to helping medical physics in developing countries.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The possibilities that are suggested in quantum physics tell us that everything that we're looking at may not be in fact there, so the underlying nature of being is weird.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'd love to go back to Europe in the '20s and '30s, for the beginning of the Psychoanalytic Movement, and Freud and Jung, and all that was going on with discoveries in quantum physics. The whole nature of reality was changing and being challenged.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The nerds are my favourite sort of boys - any guy with a passion - whether it be physics or film or writing or poetry even, I think it's super sweet and it's very attractive for a female.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
This book is about physics and its about physics and its relationship with mathematics and how they seem to be intimately related and to what extent can you explore this relationship and trust it.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The Web is now philosophical engineering. Physics and the Web are both about the relationship between the small and the large.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The point here is that physics followed the data where it seemed to lead, even though some thought the model gave aid and comfort to religion.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In science, 'fact' can only mean 'confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.' I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Philosophers have not kept up with modern developments in science. Particularly physics.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Biology is now bigger than physics, as measured by the size of budgets, by the size of the workforce, or by the output of major discoveries and biology is likely to remain the biggest part of science through the twenty-first century.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Modern science cannot explain why the laws of physics are exactly balanced for animal life to exist.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I like science fiction and physics, things like that. Planets being sucked into black holes, and the various vortexes that create possibility, and what happens on the other side of the black hole. To me it's the microcosmic study of the macrocosmic universe in man, and that's why I'm attracted to it.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In science there is only physics all the rest is stamp collecting.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of science - to question all things relentlessly. Modern physics has become like Swift's kingdom of Laputa, flying absurdly on an island above the earth and indifferent to what is beneath.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I think it's science and physics are just starting to learn from all these experiments. These experiments have been carried out hundreds and hundreds of times in all sorts of ways that no physicist really questions the end point. I think that these experiments are very clearly telling us that consciousness is limitless and the ultimate reality.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
For me, science is already fantastical enough. Unlocking the secrets of nature with fundamental physics or cosmology or astrobiology leads you into a wonderland compared with which beliefs in things like alien abductions pale into insignificance.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Traditionally, scientists have treated the laws of physics as simply 'given,' elegant mathematical relationships that were somehow imprinted on the universe at its birth, and fixed thereafter. Inquiry into the origin and nature of the laws was not regarded as a proper part of science.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The birth of science as we know it arguably began with Isaac Newton's formulation of the laws of gravitation and motion. It is no exaggeration to say that physics was reborn in the early 20th-century with the twin revolutions of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Science Fiction is not just about the future of space ships travelling to other planets, it is fiction based on science and I am using science as my basis for my fiction, but it's the science of prehistory - palaeontology and archaeology - rather than astronomy or physics.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm the son of an everyman. My father is a teacher. He teaches physics at a boys' school in Sydney.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The laws of physics should allow us to arrange things molecule by molecule and even atom by atom, and at some point it was inevitable that we would develop a technology that would let us do this.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
My intention was to enroll at McGill University but an unexpected series of events led me to study physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In 1948 I entered the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, undecided between studies of chemistry and physics, but my first year convinced me that physics was more interesting to me.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I myself believe that there will one day be time travel because when we find that something isn't forbidden by the over-arching laws of physics we usually eventually find a technological way of doing it.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
It has become part of the accepted wisdom to say that the twentieth century was the century of physics and the twenty-first century will be the century of biology.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The fact that modern physics, the manifestation of an extreme specialisation of the rational mind, is now making contact with mysticism, the essence of religion and manifestation of an extreme specialisation of the intuitive mind, shows very beautifully the unity and complementary nature of the rational and intuitive modes of consciousness; of the yang and the yin.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Relativity applies to physics, not ethicsMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

In physics, you don't have to go around making trouble for yourself - nature does it for you.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Physics does not change the nature of the world it studies, and no science of behavior can change the essential nature of man, even though both sciences yield technologies with a vast power to manipulate the subject matters.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Physics isn't a religion. If it were, we'd have a much easier time raising money.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Erwin Schrodinger has explained how he and his fellow physicists had agreed that they would report their new discoveries and experiments in quantum physics in the language of Newtonian physics. That is, they agreed to discuss and report the non-visuaMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[I]t would be better for the true physics if there were no
mathematicians on earth.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am acutely aware of the fact that the marriage between
mathematics and physics, which was so enormously fruitful in past
centuries, has recently ended in divorce.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It should be possible to explain the laws of physics to a barmaid.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Relativity applies to physics, not ethics.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Feast of Mark the Evangelist There are, of course, interesting questions that can be asked about the nature of the transformation which our Lord's body underwent in his resurrection, and if we know anything about physics and biology we are quite likely to ask them. But, since we are concerned with an occurrence which is by hypothesis unique in certain relevant aspects, we are most unlikely to be able to give confident answers to them. [Paul M.] van Buren's remarks about biology and the twentieth century are nothing mMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Commemoration of Nicholas Ferrar, Deacon, Founder of the Little Gidding Community, 1637 To me there is a much more frightening ignorance in our modern world than the "ignorance of the heathen". I am referring to the almost total ignorance of the content and implication of the Christian Faith shown by many "clever" people today. Frankly, I find it horrifying to discover that men who are experts in their own line -- in astronomy, genetics, or nuclear physics, for example -- have no adult knowledge of what the Church oMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Handy Guide to Modern Science:
1. If it's green or it wiggles, it's biology.
2. If it stinks, it's chemistry.
3. If it doesn't work, it's physics.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In science, "fact" can only mean "confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent." I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
