The Science of Existence (57) Physics Synopsis


The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible. ~ Albert Einstein

▫ Einstein was simpleminded in considering the cosmos comprehensible. The human mind makes sense of what it can and leaves the rest behind; rendering an illusion of apprehension by omission of what is not understood or not believed.

Physicists have come to see that all their theories of natural phenomena, including the ‘laws’ they describe, are creations of the human mind; properties of our conceptual map of reality, rather than reality itself. ~ Austrian physicist Fritjof Capra

▫ All theories amount to nothing more than mental maps. Whereas physics has progressed by questioning assumptions, the failure to understand the nature of existence lies in mental maps which take for granted what should not be assumed.
