Ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lies.

“One of the assertions of science is that we don’t know everything, and that in order to increase our knowledge we have to be in dialogue with nature.  And it has to be a constant dialogue.  And it’s not sufficient to end that dialogue because as we increase our ability to measure nature, we can ask questions that are of a finer and finer level.  And so we keep finding new things not because nature is changing but because we are increasing our capacity to ask the questions of nature.

Physicist Jim Gates



 “And so by embracing our limits, by embracing our fallibility, we become more knowledgeable.”
