My hat goes off to Einstein Here's a little tribute to Albert Einstein. He was a great admirer of Isaac Newton. I personally see a certain romanticism in both men. The idea of a scientist being romantic about life is not something we normally think of, but I tent to think it is at the source of their genius. Isaac Newton said, "I donít know what I may seem to the world, but as to myself, I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay undiscovered all before me."

The artistic scientist Trying to make a board comment about the "relationship of science to art, or, art to science"

Theoretical mathematics In science we work on assumption about things. One of these assumptions is that we are quite clear as to what constitutes a, 'one.'  In philosophy we provide room for ourselves by which to question even the most basic of assumptions, such as, what is 'a one,' or what is a 'unit' and how we may go from here into reasoning things like, what happens when we add one's together? This quote simply expresses a 'feeling tone' about these kind of things, (things that seem 'so obvious') yet may still be questioned and may still remain a mystery
