“We (scientists) are no longer tempted to take up the attitude that everything which lacks concreteness is thereby self-condemned.”

“ The cleavage between the scientific and nonscientific domain of experience is, I believe, not a cleavage between the concrete and transcendental, but between the metrical and nonmetrical.”

“To put the conclusion crudely — the stuff of the world is mind stuff.

The mind—stuff of the world is, of course, something more general than our individual conscious minds: but we may think of its nature as not altogether foreign to the feelings in our consciousness.

The mind-stuff is not spread in space and time; these are part of the cyclic scheme ultimately derived out of it. But we must presume that in some other way or aspect it can be differentiated into parts. Only here and there does it rise to the level of consciousness, but from such islands proceeds all knowledge.”

“We are acquainted with an external world because its fibers run into our consciousness: it is only our own ends of the fibers that we actually know; from these ends we more or less successfully reconstruct the rest, as a paleontologist reconstructs an extinct monster from its footprints.”

“Nowadays whenever enthusiasts meet together to discuss theoretical physics, the talk sooner or later turns in a certain direction. You leave them conversing on their special problems or the latest discoveries: but return after an hour and it is any odds that they will have reached an all-engrossing topic — the desperate state of their ignorance.
