Meandering in theory . . .

Today is the birthday of Fred Alan Wolf (born December 3, 1934), theoretical physicist and writer. He is known to many as Dr. Quantum or Captain Quantum.

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery." - Fred Alan Wolf

"The self is fundamentally an illusion arising as a reflection of the soul in matter, much as a clear lake at midnight reflects the moon." - Fred Alan Wolf

"What I thought was unreal now, for me, seems in some ways to be more real than what I think to be real, which seems now to be unreal." - Fred Alan Wolf

""The place where...knowledge occurs is the present. That which recognizes the present is mind." - Fred Alan Wolf

"Quantum physics says that you can't have a universe with a mind entering into it. The mind is actually shaping the very thing that is being perceived." - Fred Alan Wolf
