Gary Zukav in his popular book The Dancing Wu Li Masters, An Overview of the New Physics, says, “The conceptual framework of quantum mechanics, supported by massive volumes of experimental data, forces contemporary physicists to express themselves in a manner that sounds, even to the uninitiated, like the language of mystics.”
In fact, Albert Einstein who was voted Time magazines man of the century in 2000, is one of the great mystics of our time while being the founder of quantum physics. Consider the following quotes.
“I want to know how God created the world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon. I want know His thoughts; the rest are details.”
“That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.”
“I’m not an atheist.I can call myself a pantheist.The problem is too vast for our limited minds.We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages.The child knows someone must have written those books.It does not know how.It does not understand the languages in which they are written.The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is.That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.We see the universe marvelously arranged in obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”
Einstein was a great scientist AND filled with wisdom.
