Scientific picture of the real world July 24, 2007

“I am very astonished that the scientific picture of the real world is very deficient.

It gives a lot of information, puts all our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us.

It cannot tell a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight, 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 very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously.”

Dr. Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel prize winner and a founding father of modern quantum science.
