The joy of finding things out…

Richard Feynman is one of my core inspirations. This seemingly simple man was not only a Nobel winning quantum physicist, but also a man who claimed that anyone who said they understood quantum physics was a liar. He also played the bongo drums, picked locks and worked with Einstein on the atomic bomb.

Feyman says:

I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing… I think it’s much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong.

I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose… which is the way it really is as far as I can tell.
