Some thoughts to guide our simulation/gaming
I do not know what I may appear to the world;
but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and
diverting myself in now and then finding of a smoother pebble or a prettier
shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before
me. Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) English physicist,
The aim of science is to seek the simplest
explanation of complex facts. We are apt to fall into the error of thinking that
the facts are simple because simplicity is the goal of our quest. The guiding
motto in the life of every natural philosopher should be "Seek simplicity and
distrust it.'' Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) English
mathematician and philosopher. Concepts of Nature, p. 163.
All of physics is either impossible or
trivial. It is impossible until you understand it, and then it becomes trivial.
Ernest Rutherford (1st Baron Rutherford of Nelson)
(1871- 1937) English physicist, born in New Zealand. Nobel prize for chemistry
- The most beautiful experience we can have
is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of
true art and true science. Albert Einstein
(1879-1955) U. S. physicist, born in Germany.
- One thing I have learned in a long life:
that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike and
yet it is the most precious thing we have. Albert
Einstein (1879-1955) U. S. physicist, born in Germany.
- Whoever undertakes to set himself up as
a judge in the field of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of
the gods. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) U.
S. physicist, born in Germany.
