Quotations
21 ;;Quote: is a book that describes Einstein's brain aware? If so, what if it is never opened up and consulted?
 23 ;;Quote: everything (including minds) need not be a digital computer
 112 ;;Quote: mathematical concepts have absolute truth and a Platonic existence; e.g., the Mandelbrot set
 174 ;;Quote: the best scientific theories are fertile sources of mathematical ideas; connects the real world with mathematics
 228 ;;Quote: classical physics requires both particles described by 6 parameters and fields described by an infinite number of parameters
 235 ;;Quote: a photon behaves in a wavelike way entirely on its own; its alternative possibilities can cancel out
 354 ;;Quote: it appears that the big bang state is less probable than the entire solar system being created by random collisions
 369 ;;Quote: at some stage, the quantum linear superposition becomes actual alternatives one of which is observed; may happen at the onegraviton level
 416 ;;Quote: evolution appears to be more organized then it ought to be from natural selection
 418 ;;Quote: mathematical truth is not something that we ascertain merely by an algorithm; we must 'see' its truth
 437 ;;Quote: perhaps mind is quantum gravity selecting one of many superpositioned alternatives
 447 ;;Quote: a universe governed by laws that do not allow consciousness is no universe at all; current mathematical descriptions fail this criterion
