"When people agree with me I always feel that I must be wrong." - (O.Wide)

"I may not agree with what you say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it!" - (Patrick Henry)

"The above opinions are my own, but even I don't always agree with them." - [Anonymous]


P.A.M. Dirac explained why he embraced relativity theory by saying,
"It is the essential beauty of the theory which I feel is the real reason for believing in it."
"Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections. You can keep your sterile truth for yourself."
... Vilfredo Pareto 1848-1923


Understanding & Comprehention

1. the most difficult thing to understand is why we understand at all.

2. the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.

(Albert Einstein)


- Mathematicians search proof that a solution exists.
- Physicists search a unique solution.
- Engineers search an optimal solution.
- Politicians search sufficient solution.
- People search anyone/anyhow solution.


Mathematicians work without risk.
Physicists neglect risk.
Engineers accept risk.
Politicians minimalise risk.
People fear risk.

-------------- [G.Ridman] 

Our greatest fear is not that we have no power,
but that we have power beyond our imaginings. Nelson Mandela


To make mistakes trying to solve essential problems, is surely more important for the science and researchers than impeccability of mediocre and marginal solutions.

(-)T.Tomaszewski & G.Ridman


Autonomy of researchers should be limited only by clear objectives, the constrains of the scientific method and ... the real project founds.
