Twice upon a time in the condensed universe ...

Prof. Robert B. Laughlin

Cartoon by Robert B. Laughlin, Stanford U.

  • "I am going to tell you what nature behaves like. If you will simply admit that maybe she does behave like this, you will find her a delightful, entrancing thing. Do not keep saying to yourself, if you can possibly avoid it, ‘but how can it be like that?’ because you will get ‘down the drain,’ into a blind alley from which nobody has yet escaped. Nobody knows how it can be like that."
