Corrected source for "matrix" quote.

Esoteric Bias[edit]

IMHO the english version of Max PLanck quotes (unlike the german page) makes Max PLank into an esotericist, there are so many UNVERIFIED (and probably miss-translated) quotes, really worse than worthless. Slack. I feel like deleting them all 11:10, 10 October 2011 (UTC)

Science changes one funeral at a time[edit]

I've found this quote, "Science changes one funeral at a time", commonly attributed to Max Planck on the web. Any confirmation or something?

  • We may conclude that from what science teaches us, there is in nature an order independent of man's existence, a meaningful order to which nature and man are subordinate.
    • This is widely attributed to Planck on the internet, but with no known citation to a published source.
  • Experimenters are the striking force of science. The experiment is a question which science puts to nature. The measurement is the registration of nature’s answer. But before the question is put to nature, it must be formulated. Before the measurement result is used, it must be explained, i.e., the answer must be understood correctly. These two problems are obligations of the theoreticians.
    • Very few Google hits for key phrases from this, and none are contemporaneous or authoritative. ~ Ningauble 16:24, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
