All our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike — and yet it is the most precious thing we have.
I wished to show that space-time is not necessarily something to which one can ascribe a separate existence, independently of the actual objects of physical reality. Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended.
This change in the conception of reality is the most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton.
Is human reason, then, without experience, merely by taking thought, able to fathom the properties of real things? In my opinion the answer to this question is, briefly, this: — As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.
They give you the semblance of success, I give you the reality.
Everything is energy and that’s all there is. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.
I pity you who are my companions, because you think that you are doing something when in reality you are doing nothing.
Thus our State, which is also yours, will be a reality, and not a dream only, and will be administered in a spirit unlike that of other States, in which men fight with one another about shadows only and are distracted in the struggle for power, which in their eyes is a great good.
Reality is created by the mind. We can change our reality by changing our mind.
How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality?
