Someone on some podcast I was listening to (Coach Will here, btw) mentioned Richard Feynman recently. It was the 80th time for me (and I still hadn’t read anything by the Nobel-prize winning physicist), so I picked up a short sampling of his lectures called Six Easy Pieces.
The title is a joke, because the book is 6 essays on the hardest damn ideas known to man. Things like gravity, and energy, and quantum… stuff.
But it’s ok. In Feynman’s words, anyone who says they understand quantum physics doesn’t understand quantum physics (it’s...unknowable, currently. I guess. Shrug).
After all, there’s value in not knowing things, too. In knowing what you don’t know, and generally knowing what it is to be ignorant.
