There are a lot of things I don't understand, or able to prove, that dosen't mean it dosen't exist.
Elden, actual scientists are the first to concede that we know virtually nothing and the vast majority of that which we think we know . . . is usually wrong.
Science is quite humbling when we come to grips with it. We find constantly that the ancients knew far more than we because the ancients also used their intuition, hence were able to avoid the pratfalls that modernists often commit.
Alan van Dyke was the head of theoretical physics for the Manhattan Project from 1942-1945. There is scarcely one physicist on the planet who does not have his, "Babies in a playpen" speech, tattooed on the inside of his left frontal lobe.
"We have cracked the indestructible atom, we have harnessed its immense power to create the most despicable weapon in history, we have changed the course of destiny and we did it in a mad rush where we wasted anything but time.
"We may wish to pat ourselves on the backs and say that we did the impossible, but gentlemen, we have done nothing that wasn't laid out for us and we merely followed the directions.
"Until we create something, from absolutely nothing, direct its course to become what we want it to become, and control it well, then we have done nothing. We haven't even begun the task. All this junk at Hanford, Oak Ridge, Berkeley, Stanford and . . . wherever else on this planet it is located, means nothing. It is junk and we will need to scrap the whole business eventually.
"Until we create something from nothing and understand the process correctly, we are as impotent as babies in a playpen."
