  • The universe is not only queerer than we suppose; it is queerer than we can suppose

    Bill Bryson (2014). “A Short History of Nearly Everything”, p.20, Lulu Press, Inc
  • What if consciousness is the ground of being? What if the possibilities discovered by quantum physics are the possibilities of consciousness itself? Remember there is already a class of people who think in this way. They are called mystics, and they say it is all God. Finally, a few scientists dared to say that some of the characteristics attributed to God are similar to what we describe as consciousness.

  • Observations not only disturb what is to be measured, they produce it.

  • Non- Euclidean calculus and quantum physics are enough to stretch any brain; and when one mixes them with folklore, and tries to trace a strange background of multi-dimensional reality behind the ghoulish hints of Gothic tales and the wild whispers of the chimney-corner, one can hardly expect to be wholly free from mental tension. (Dreams In The Witch-House)

    Dream   Reality   House  
    H. P. Lovecraft (2017). “Dreams in the Witch House”, p.3, BookRix
  • What I thought was unreal now, for me, seems in some ways to be more real than what I think to be real, which seems now to be unreal

    Real   Science   Thinking  
  • When asked ... [about] an underlying quantum world, Bohr would answer, 'There is no quantum world. There is only an abstract quantum physical description. It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how nature is. Physics concerns what we can say about Nature.'

  • There does seem to be a sense in which physics has gone beyond what human intuition can understand. We shouldn't be too surprised about that because we're evolved to understand things that move at a medium pace at a medium scale. We can't cope with the very tiny scale of quantum physics or the very large scale of relativity.

    "Of mind and matter: David Attenborough meets Richard Dawkins". The Guardian Interview, www.theguardian.com. September 10, 2010.
  • Life is strong and fragile. It's a paradox... It's both things, like quantum physics: It's a particle and a wave at the same time. It all exists all together.

  • If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet.

    Biography/Personal Quotes, www.imdb.com.
  • The only difference between causation and the value is that the word "cause" implies absolute certainty whereas the implied meaning of "value" is one of preference. In classical science it was supposed that the world always works in terms of absolute certainty and that "cause" is the more appropriate word to describe it. But in modern quantum physics all that is changed. Particles "prefer" to do what they do. An individual particle is not absolutely committed to one predictable behavior. What appears to be an absolute cause is just a very consistent pattern of preferences.

  • Everyone and everything that shows up in the world of form in this universe originates not from a particle, as quantum physics teaches us, but from an energy field.

  • It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to the consciousness.

    Eugene Paul Wigner (2012). “Philosophical Reflections and Syntheses”, p.248, Springer Science & Business Media
  • Quantum physics - the idea that there is more than one reality going on at the same time in the same place. We live in a concentric society, and we'll have to make our decisions, cake as pie, as pending resolve. It's really and truly - I don't know if "as" will count any longer.

  • Reality has been around since long before you showed up. Don't go calling it nasty names like 'bizarre' or 'incredible'. The universe was propagating complex amplitudes through configuration space for ten billion years before life ever emerged on Earth. Quantum physics is not 'weird'. You are weird.

  • If [quantum theory] is correct, it signifies the end of physics as a science.

    Physics   Ends   Quantum  
  • Quantum physics tells us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. That statement, from science, holds an enormous and powerful insight. It means that everyone sees a different truth because everyone is creating what they see.

    Neale Donald Walsch (2010). “When Everything Changes, Change Everything: In a time of turmoil, a pathway to peace”, p.129, Hachette UK
  • Sci-fi has never really been my bag. But I do believe in a lot of weird things these days, such as synchronicity. Quantum physics suggests it's possible, so why not?

    Believe   Bags   Why Not  
    "'Ross and Brand were astoundingly tasteless'". Interview with Amy Raphael, www.theguardian.com. November 28, 2008.
  • In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

  • I believe in God the way I believe in quarks. People whose business it is to know about quantum physics or religion tell me they have good reason to believe that quarks and God exist. And they tell me that if I wanted to devote my life to learning what they've learned, I'd find quarks and God just like they did.

    Mary Doria Russell (1996). “The Sparrow”, Random House
  • All science is either physics or stamp collecting.

    Quoted in J. B. Birks, Rutherford at Manchester (1962)
  • I think I can safely say that nobody understands Quantum Mechanics.

    The Character of Physical Law ch. 6 (1965)
  • I make figurative portraits as a way to explore theories of quantum physics.

    "Locating Loss with Oliver Jeffers". Interview with Angela Ledgerwood, www.interviewmagazine.com. November 20, 2014.
  • Everyone and everything that shows up in the world of form in this universe originates not from a particle, as quantum physics teaches us, but from an energy field. That energy field can be called God, soul, spirit, or consciousness. It looks a certain way, sounds a certain way, and feels a certain way. I try to stay in harmony with what I believe it sounds and feels like.

  • This is the most important joke I've ever heard. Niels Bohr, the founder of Quantum Physics, had a friend to dinner. As the friend left, he noticed a horseshoe nailed above Bohr's front door. He said to Bohr, accusingly, "Niels, you're a great scientist. You can't believe in superstitions." Bohr answered, "I don't, but apparently it works anyway."As with confirmation bias, we tend to lean toward superstitions that benefit us.

  • What quantum physics teaches us is that everything we thought was physical is not physical.

  • Those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it.

    "The Philosophical Writings of Niels Bohr, Volume IV: Causality and Complementarity" edited by Jan Faye and Henry J. Folse (1998); later quoted in Karen Michelle Barad "Meeting the Universe Halfway: Quantum Physics and the Entanglement of Matter and Meaning" (p. 254), 2007.
  • 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.

    Address to Prussian Academy of Sciences, Berlin, 27 Jan. 1921
  • The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful.

    Henri Poincare (2012). “The Value of Science: Essential Writings of Henri Poincare”, p.318, Modern Library
  • After the conversations about Indian philosophy, some of the ideas of Quantum Physics that had seemed so crazy suddenly made much more sense.

    "Pride of India". Book by Samskrita Bharati, 2006.
  • But even technical work filled with formulas can be valuable and important. Einstein offered a lot of technical work on quantum physics, which mostly eludes me. I refer to his work, and I have studied it, but I am not a physicist. But look at Einstein's simple statement that the most important decision you ever will make is the decision whether you live in a friendly universe or a hostile universe.
