*---- Quotes For The Day ----*

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.
--Albert Einstein

Maturity, one discovers, has everything to do with the acceptance of 'not knowing.
--Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it is much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong. If we will only allow that, as we progress, we remain unsure, we will leave opportunities for alternatives. We will not become enthusiastic for the fact, the knowledge, the absolute truth of the day, but remain always uncertain ... In order to make progress, one must leave the door to the unknown ajar.
--Richard P. Feynman


**--- MYSTERY QUOTE ---**

Everything you've learned in school as "obvious" becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There's not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.

*---- More Quotes for the Week ----*

Embrace relational uncertainty. It's called romance. Embrace spiritual uncertainty. It's called mystery. Embrace occupational uncertainty. It's called destiny. Embrace emotional uncertainty. It's called joy. Embrace intellectual uncertainty. It's called revelation.

Technology tends toward avoidance of risks by investors. Uncertainty is ruled out if possible. People generally prefer the predictable. Few recognize how destructive this can be, how it imposes severe limits on variability and thus makes whole populations fatally vulnerable to the shocking ways our universe can throw the dice.
--Frank Herbert, Heretics of Dune

The more we learn about the world and the deeper our learning, the more conscious, specific, and articulate will be our knowledge of what we do not know, our knowledge of our ignorance. For this is indeed the main source of our ignorance-the fact that our knowledge can only be finite while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.
--Karl Popper, Philosopher
