Thinking hard about patterns in life and science.

The world of thought is an interesting and dangerous place. Too often I get lost in it and end with a desperate need to purge my mind.

Prepare to witness this.

 

People don’t fear change, they fear loss.

There is no true joy and compassion except through the difficult emotions – all we get without the experience of fear, anger, and sadness are cheap imitations of joy and compassion – pleasantness and sentimentality.

Nothing can compare with that experience… The reward of the old scientist is the sense of having seen a vague sketch grow into a masterly landscape.
