QM #3

With science I felt I could grab on to actual things and try to understand them. And then they turn out to be so extraordinarily mysterious! Newton's laws of motion, the laws of the electromagnetic field, relativity - they're so far removed from experience, but yet there it is. It's a measure of all the other things that I look at. It gives you an
approach to the human race, apart from these inherited things of nationality and whatnot, which you can't take very seriously. That's what science was for me - a citadel. I know some place where I can find out things which are so, and not trivial. Far from trivial.
