I haven’t yet found the time to sit down with the first two TEDGlobal 2009 public releases.  I’m sharing them here as encouragement to make time.

David Deutsch (Quantum physicist)

  • "Look at the world.  You don’t see equations on the mountain sides."
  • "The Unseen doesn’t come to us through the senses."
  • "We perceive nothing as it really is"

These ideas come from the thematic prompt “Hidden Algorithm”.  Deutsch’s general idea is that one can explain something to you, but they might be explaining to you via things that are not true.
