" As a man who has devoted his whole life to the most clearheaded science, I can tell you as a result of my research into atoms this much. There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particles of the atom into vibration. I must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."
Max Plank

" We do not belong to this material world that science constructs for us. We are not in it; we are outside. We are only spectators. The reason why we believe that we are in it, that we belong to the picture, is that our bodies are in the picture. "
Erwin Schrodinger

Reading quotations like these always brings me right back into a sense of wonder and mystery.
