"Ego is the immediate dictate of human consciousness."
- Max Planck

"All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force... We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent Mind. This Mind is the matrix of all matter."
- Max Planck

"Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are a part of the mystery that we are trying to solve."
- Max Planck

"Scientific discovery and scientific knowledge have been achieved only by those who have gone in pursuit of it without any practical purpose whatsoever in view"
- Max Planck

"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it"
- Max Planck

"It is not the possession of truth, but the success which attends the seeking after it, that enriches the seeker and brings happiness to him."
- Max Planck


"We have no right to assume that any physical laws exist, or if they have existed up until now, that they will continue to exist in a similar manner in the future."
- Max Planck

"Those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it."
Niels Bohr (Volume II - Essays 1932-1957 on Atomic Physics and Human Knowledge)


"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real."
Niels Bohr


"The meaning of life consists in the fact that it makes no sense to say that life has no meaning."
Niels Bohr



“The quantum theory of parallel universes is not the problem, it is the solution. It is not some troublesome, optional interpretation emerging from arcane theoretical considerations. It is the explanation, the only one that is tenable, of a remarkable and counter-intuitive reality.”

 David Deutsch quote Oxford



"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to? affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
Albert Einstein
