Universe ≠ Logical

“If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get very far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.” — Vannevar Bush (engineer, inventor, science administrator 1890-1974)

Creative Reading

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“There is then creative reading as well as creative writing. When the mind is braced by labor and invention, the page of whatever book we read becomes luminous with manifold allusion. Every sentence is doubly significant, and the sense of our author is as broad as the world.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson (essayist, poet 1803-1882)
