Little Truths

„These are the little truths of the everyday; that rocks fall, smoke rises, fire is hot and the sun and the moon are both round. If we remain steadfastly and rigorously committed to these “little truths,” we can in time derive the great truths of physics, which provide us such awesome knowledge and power. In between the little truths and the great truths, however, are the illusions that blind us – both in physics and in ethics.“
