"First, people in the sciences did not make an effective case for the implications of their work.
Second, while many eminent scientists, notably Arthur Eddington and James Jeans,
also wrote books for a general audience, their works were ignored by the self-proclaimed intellectuals,
and the value and importance of the ideas presented remained invisible as an intellectual activity,
because science was not a subject for the reigning journals and magazines."
"Don't believe any of this. Place no value in the book, in the author. Give it up, the idea of author, of truth.
Give up all belief: believe only in yourself.
You: you are nothing but my experience. Me: I don't. I don't believe any of this."
