Schrödinger Quote

1 02 2011

[The scientific picture] gives us a lot of factual information, puts all our experience in magnificent order, but is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near our heart, that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains, but the answers are often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously.

(Erwin Schrödinger, Mind and Matter)
