Richard Feynman talks about light

Inconceivable nature of nature.

"In physics the truth is rarely perfectly clear, and that is certainly universally the case in human affairs.  Hence, what is surrounded by uncertainty cannot be the truth."
- Richard P. Feynman

"What is not surrounded by uncertainty cannot be the truth."

"This offhand aphorism sums up Feynman's worldview - the pursuit of truth, amid a welter of uncertainty, by a researcher who will neither abandon the quest nor lose sight of his doubts.  It was that  spirit, the spirit of science, to which the world responded by cheering Feynman on, and he will be remembered as long as science thrives."

- Timothy Ferris
