APHORISMS

Agreement

"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]

True

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.
and
- People search anyone/anyhow solution.

--------------

Mathematicians work without risk.
Physicists neglect risk.
Engineers accept risk.
Politicians minimalise risk.
and
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

Human-errors

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

Solutions

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