Meandering in the box . . .

Today is the birthday of Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger (August 12, 1887 – January 4, 1961), theoretical physicist. He is best known as one of the fathers of quantum mechanics and the thought experiment known as Schrödinger's cat.

Erwin Schrödinger received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1933.

"This life of yours which you are living is not merely a piece of this entire existence, but in a certain sense the whole; only this whole is not so constituted that it can be surveyed in one single glance." - Erwin Schrodinger

"Quantum physics thus reveals a basic oneness of the universe." - Erwin Schrodinger

"We are never in a position to say what really is or what really happens, but we can only say what will be observed in any concrete individual case." - Erwin Schrodinger

"What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space." - Erwin Schrodinger

"Inconceiveable as it seems to ordinary reason, you — and all other conscious beings as such — are all in all." - Erwin Schrodinger

"The plurality that we perceive is only an appearance; it is not real." - Erwin Schrodinger

"No self is of itself alone." - Erwin Schrodinger
