Hi there,

You know Miloš Forman - the film director:

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)

Hair (1979)

Amadeus (1984)

The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996)

Man on the Moon (1999)


On ACM (TV channel) there is something where famous film directors TALK. I like that.

I always listen to Milos Forman. At the end of the interview he said ( I paraphrase):

"Look, you have to tell the truth. But try not to be boring. BECAUSE TRUTH IS BORING."


First 4 minutes of the following lecture are the essence:

" ... But when these ideas first saw the light of ???day???, when they was first invented, when they was first discovered they were messy, confusing, inelegant, incoherent, disorganized, even sometimes self contradictory. ???You could think about Bohr model??? ### consistent. ... I say this because you are captivated only by the elegant and ???formalistic??? side of physics - the best that you can achieve is that you become an A+ student. You will not become a physicist engaged in process of creation. So the word of warning is not to let this lecture drive you only into this little corner of physics. You must develop an interest, a liking and skills for the more messy side of physics if you ever want to participate in the process of creating new physics doing research..."
/some words I couldn't catch or misinterpreted/

Substitute "physics" with whatever you like.

Prof. Kenneth Young on "A Special Lecture: Principle of Least Action"


One shouldn't be afraid of this 2 hour lecture. There is a very little math there (one could skip integrals and differentials without missing the point). The rest is the philosophy of scientific thinking.

Newtons mechanics, Einstein's theories, Quantum mechanics are explained out of Principle of Least Action.


Consciousness is not a big problem.  Maybe it has already been solved.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi waive15/John,

Thanks for your contribution. I've finished my own work, as you suggested. It's awaiting approval by Daniel at the moment. I hope you'll add your own comments. I appreciate your quotes from Twain and Feynman. They're a caution that should be observed. I hope I have not fooled myself, but that's for others, such as yourself to judge. I look forward to hearing from you again. Best wishes, Bruce.
