And those whose hearts are fixed on Reality
itself deserve the title of Philosophers.

Denying realism amounts to megalomania
(the most widespread occupational disease of the professional philosopher).

Hi and welcome everyone (March, 2012)
This website is about truth and reality - about how you and everything
around you exist in space. We have an extensive collection of pages on many
of the greatest minds from history, with thousands of brilliant quotes that
are both inspiring and profoundly important. More than this though, we provide
a simple solution to many of the problems of knowledge that have caused
humanity so much conflict and confusion.
And yes, we do realise that people are skeptical of websites on truth and reality. But the solution is obvious once known - it just takes our minds a while to adjust to new ways of thinking.
This page is divided into three parts;
Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... I maintain also that substances, whether material or immaterial, cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity, activity being of the essence of substance in general. (Gottfried Leibniz, 1670)
(Bradley, 1846-1924) We may agree, perhaps, to understand by Metaphysics an attempt to know reality as against mere appearance, or the study of first principles or ultimate truths, or again the effort to comprehend the universe, not simply piecemeal or by fragments, but somehow as a whole.
For the past 350 years (since Newton) we have tried to describe an interconnected reality (which has been known for thousands of years) with many discrete and separate 'particles'. Thus you have to add forces or fields to the particles to connect them together in space and time. This is merely a mathematical solution and it does not explain how discrete matter particles create continuous fields that act on other particles in the space around them. Further, both quantum physics (particle-wave duality, non-locality, uncertainty) and Einstein's general relativity (matter-energy curves space-time) contradict the concept of discrete and separate 'particles'.
We simply needed to describe reality from the
most simple foundation of the one thing, Space, that all matter exists in
(look around you now and think about this - we all experience existing in
This leads to only one solution, a Wave Structure of Matter in Space from which we then deduce the fundamentals of physics, philosophy and metaphysics to show that it is correct (and scientific / testable, not just our opinion).
|Fig. 1: There is no particle-wave duality of matter,
just a spherical standing wave structure of matter where the wave center
creates the 'particle' effect, and the spherical in and out waves provide
continual two way communication with all other matter in the universe.
We only see the high wave amplitude wave-center and have been deluded into thinking matter was made of tiny little 'particles'. A very naive conception in hindsight - and quantum physics was telling us all along that waves were central to light and matter interactions!
There are just two steps to deducing the truth about your existence in
And I emphasize that none of this is my opinion - everyone will come to the same conclusions since it is deduced.
Science requires physical reality to be logical, sensible and simple (Occam’s razor). Metaphysics requires the existence of one active substance to explain the causal connection between the many things we experience, as Leibniz simply states;
“Reality cannot be found except in One single source, because of the interconnection of all things with one another. ... I maintain also that substances cannot be conceived in their bare essence without any activity, activity being of the essence of substance in general. (Gottfried Leibniz, 1670)
This dynamic unity of reality from one active substance, required to explain how reality is connected together and changing (causal connection) is well known throughout history, the ancient Greeks (and Indians, Chinese, many others ...) realised this 2,500 years ago, as Aristotle in his famous metaphysical treatise writes;
"The first philosophy (Metaphysics) is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. ... And here we will have the science to study that which is just as that which is, both in its essence and in the properties which, just as a thing that is, it has. ... The entire preoccupation of the physicist is with things that contain within themselves a principle of movement and rest. And to seek for this is to seek for the second kind of principle, that from which comes the beginning of the change." (Aristotle, Metaphysics, 340BC)
Given we all experience many minds and many material things, but always in one common Space, and since we must describe physical reality in terms of only one substance, we must conclude this one substance is Space. (If you try using many things, like matter or minds, you have to add a second thing to connect these many things together and this contradicts our rules of science and metaphysics.)
So now we are considering the properties of this space to explain activity
Look around you in space and notice that light comes in to you from all directions. This light has well known discrete ‘particle’ and continuous wave properties (the famous particle-wave duality of both light and matter). However, we cannot add discrete and separate particles to space (a second substance is not allowed) but we can have space vibrating (a property of space as a wave medium). Thus we come to the necessary conclusion that this one substance must be space, and this space must have waves flowing through it in all directions (since we can see things in all directions).
Thus we have our one active substance - vibrating space (the wave motion of space) and this is the cause of change / time. (Interestingly, Aristotle also realised this connection between time, matter and motion - the common mistake was to consider the motion of matter in space and time - rather than the wave motion of space that causes matter and time.)
Finally, we must consider what kind of waves can flow in all directions
through three dimensional space. We find the most simple solution is two
dimensional plane waves moving in the third dimension.
So let us now simply state our conclusion - our truth statement for what exists.
One Active Substance (Three Dimensional Space) Exists and has Plane Waves Flowing Through it in All Directions.
This is the most simple way to describe physical reality that is in harmony
with science and metaphysics - and it is a valid scientific model that can
be mathematically treated to make testable predictions.
Fortunately for us, a brilliant philosopher, metaphysicist and mathematician, Sir William Rowan Hamilton (1843) invented quaternions, a three dimensional algebra that does exactly this - they represent the motion of real things in real three dimensional space. Hamilton believed this mathematics was special and would be important to physics (he carved it on a stone bridge, as he was walking when he thought of it and did not want to forget!).
And it turns out he was correct about its importance - in fact he was 60 years ahead of Einstein in connecting three dimensional space (x,y,z) with time (t) into a four dimensional space-time continuum in one quaternion equation q = t + ix + jy + kz where the i, j, and k terms are imaginary numbers such that i2 = j2 = k2 = ijk = -1
"Time is said to have only one dimension, and space to have three dimensions. ... The mathematical quaternion partakes of both these elements; in technical language it may be said to be 'time plus space', or 'space plus time': and in this sense it has, or at least involves a reference to, four dimensions. And how the One of Time, of Space the Three, Might in the Chain of Symbols girdled be." (W R Hamilton)
It is beautifully elegant mathematics that perhaps scares off many people
because of its use of imaginary numbers i, j, k. But these just represent
90 degree rotations. Thus i2 = -1 really means a 180 degree rotation
which reverses an object's direction, hence the negative sign.
So whenever you see ix, jy and kz you are considering vectors on orthogonal planes (90 degrees, perpendicular, at right angles) to the x, y and z axis. This then gives us the four dimensional mathematical structure to represent plane waves flowing through 3D space.
So now we are in a position to test this wave theory of reality to see if it correctly deduces the properties of matter that we observe in the space around us.
And now for the very cool clever bit - it is these waves that create both matter 'particles' and fields! i.e. When you do the mathematics (complex quaternion wave functions) you discover that space actually vibrates in two completely different ways depending upon the phase of the intersecting plane waves - and these two modes of vibration exactly deduce both the quantum field (backgound space) and matter 'particles'.
BACKGROUND SPACE FIELD VIBRATIONS - Space vibrates in a fixed (but very complex) vector / transverse wave pattern in all directions.
PARTICLE VIBRATIONS (ELECTRONS & POSITRONS) - Space vibrates spherically around a central point - a scalar longitudinal spherical standing wave.
Of profound importance though is the fact that there are exactly four
unique phase arrangements of the plane waves such that all the vector /
transverse wave components cancel one another and you are left with this
scalar / longitudinal spherical standing wave (space vibrates radially in
and out around a central point).
Two of these phase arrangements create the two spin states of electrons, and two phase arrangements create the two spin states of the opposite phase standing waves, positrons (anti-matter).
This keeps the phase of electrons and positrons locked to the phase of background space (which is the same everywhere) thus explaining how these wave-center 'particles' are locked in their respective phase relations with one another across the universe (what I was seeking).
How amazing - we never needed to add Newton's 'God particles' to space, these appear naturally as the wave centers of spherical standing waves which naturally form from these plane waves. The wave diagrams are very useful aids for understanding this.)
This simple diagram represents intersecting plane waves. When you combine the left eight diagrams you get the image on the right. You can clearly see the spherical effects starting to form - and importantly you also see opposite phases (positrons and electrons) being formed. We have a page of wave diagrams that will help you visualize the spherical standing wave structure of matter (WSM) in space.
Very importantly, the wave solutions are in pairs. This means that whenever
the phase arrangements of intersecting plane waves produce an electron,
they will also necessarily produce the opposite phase positron next to it
(they will also have opposite spin states). This explains matter-antimatter
pair production which is occurring everywhere in space all the time - because
space vibrates in two distinct patterns (particles and fields) which it
is constantly switching between.
However if you want to see and use these 'particles' then you need to add energy to them to separate them (before they annihilate / switch back to the quantum field vibratory pattern). This explains why a strong electric field in 'empty space' creates a stream of positrons and electrons. (I actually deduced this last night then checked - it is true.) This also means physics understanding of the energy of matter and space is incomplete / wrong, it is missing this underlying wave energy of space that creates both matter 'particles' and their 'fields'. Thus modern physics thinks that particle / anti-particle pair production contradicts conservation of energy laws (since matter and anti matter both have positive energy) so they cheat and use the uncertainty principle to avoid this (search pair production in wikipedia). The solution, the pair production is just the plane waves changing their phase arrangements such that space changes from a field vibration pattern to two particle vibration patterns (spherical standing waves). Both wave patterns have the same energy - it is just distributed in different directions / wave patterns.
From the above plane wave formalism in 3D space the quaternion wave equation
you get is a general form of the Dirac equation - and this is really the
equation of the universe as it connects the 'field' to the 'particle' -
all from intersecting plane waves in space.
Dirac found the solution mathematically by factorizing the energy equation of matter (Klein Gordon equation) into its component parts, whereas we have deduced it from first principles of plane waves in space.
Interestingly, it is well known that the Dirac equation represents multiple plane wave solutions, but physicists, blinded by their particle conceptions, and then later by Born's probability wave interpretation, never imagined real plane waves in space as a solution. This is a classic example of existing beliefs blinding us to novel truths - or put another way, we are biologically programmed to be culturally programmed! (This is also why Planck observed that new ideas only arise in physics when those with the old ideas die!)
Despite the errors one must also marvel at how much mathematical analysis was done on the tiny details of matter without ever understanding it. But now any sensible logical person can simply understand and visualize physical reality - and most importantly, you can deduce all the central equations of modern physics (Einstein's relativity and quantum physics) using three dimensional quaternion wave equations. This has already been done - I have just provided the physical meaning of the equations which no one else seems to have yet realised.
"If quaternions are used consistently in theoretical
physics, we get a complete description of the physical world, with relativistic
and quantum effects easily taken into account. Thus Hamilton’s idea, which
motivated more then half of his professional life, that quaternions are
a fundamental building block of the physical universe, appears to be essentially
correct in the light of contemporary knowledge."
(Andre Gsponer and Jean-Pierre Hurn, http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/math-ph/pdf/0201/0201058v5.pdf)
Basically stated, once you have the correct three dimensional mathematical
structure for describing real plane waves in real three dimensional space,
you find that you can deduce all the main equations of modern physics. i.e.
We now have a complete metaphysical / scientific theory that deduces all
of quantum physics and Einstein's relativity with the complete mathematics
I have just provided the final piece of the puzzle, the connection of quaternion maths to real complex plane waves in three dimensional space that form real scalar spherical standing waves and their wave-center 'particles'.
I am well aware of postmodernism and its dangerously destructive conclusion (to reason, science and society) that we are trapped in the mind and can never know the thing in itself (see Kant), thus metaphysics is meaningless, all knowledge is uncertain, merely cultural human constructs, logical positivist tools for thinking.
However, once you understand, and most importantly, correct the errors that were made that led to postmodernism (e.g. removing discrete ‘particles’ and understanding causal connection from one active substance) you find that we can imagine physical reality perfectly well - one substance space vibrates in a variety of wave patterns that we observe as matter. (And if this seems strange to you, well that is our natural response to seeing familiar things with new knowledge, in time it does open a beautiful vista on the majestic harmony of our universe.)
Most significantly, metaphysics, this awareness of the dynamic unity of
reality, was central to the emergence of reason and philosophy, the arts
and sciences, thus it is correct and long overdue to re-unite this with
And here we see the cause of all the confusion - Newton's mechanics had a metaphysics of space and time to which he must add discrete 'particles' with mass and 'magical' forces to connect them (action-at-a-distance). This was always just a mathematical solution which never explained how matter was connected across the universe. By describing reality most simply, in terms of waves is space, we now understand how 'particles' can appear in this space as discrete things, yet in reality are connected across the universe by their in and out waves (plane waves).
No. I do not believe that is possible. This is a description of physical reality, i.e. wave energy interactions in space, how this explains matter. But science says nothing about how our minds can convert sense data based on wave patterns into feelings of love and hate, good and bad, pleasure and pain, tastes and colors, all the higher sensual, emotional and moral representations of our minds. We know these things exist because we all personally experience them. To me this is the religious spiritual side of human existence, where God is the total properties of space (God is not separate from the world, God and nature are one - thus we have moved from Newton and God's particles to God's space or Godspace).
Albert Einstein expresses this enlightened view of God well, he writes;
'I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.'
We find this connected harmony of a dynamic unity of reality (God, Brahman, Tao, Spirit, Energy, Light, Vibration) is central to all major world religions, thus their common, and very important moral foundation of 'Do unto others as to thyself'. This is true - the other is part of the self! To me this is all we need to know to live kindly with one another, with all life on Earth.
From this most simple foundation of plane waves in space naturally creating two different modes of vibration - spherical particle vibrations and complex field vibrations - we can now deduce all of modern physics.
However, the complexity that evolves from this simple dynamic wave system
is extraordinary, as is required to explain how such amazing life can exist
in the universe. Most importantly, we can see why evolution (change) and
ecology (interconnection) are true as they are properties of physical reality.
Over billions of years this evolution and ecology of matter waves in the
universe has evolved levels of complexity far beyond the comprehension of
our feeble minds.
For some perspective - there are a trillion trillion wave-center 'particles' in a pin head, all vibrating 10^20 times per second with 10^80 other wave-center 'particles' in the universe - mind boggling!
The problem for humanity is that our human civilization is also a very
complexly evolved wave structure of the universe that is beyond our comprehension,
and now clearly in great trouble due to human overpopulation and the resultant
destruction of Nature, climate change and the pollution of air, land and
Basically, our current global system functions in a very destructive dysfunctional manner simply because it is founded on past myths and customs, these are not true thus they cause us harm. And there is only once solution - to understand the truth about our existence in the universe so that we can think and act wisely. And one central wisdom - life on earth is far too complex to be regulated or recklessly exploited (GMO), it must be allowed to function naturally or it will collapse, wiping out much of our civilization and causing the deaths of billions (our children).
So please - once you understand this wave conception of reality and have
satisfied yourself that it is true - then go crazy and send it off to everyone
you know - send it to universities, post it on blogs and forums, just get
active and make it visible!
And we are close to succeeding - this is one of the top philosophy websites on the Internet with around 600,000 page views each week, and ranks in the top 20 in Google for many academic search terms - so we just need a bit of help to get in the top five.
Given the Censorship in Physics / Philosophy of Science Journals (founded on the standard model / particle physics) the internet is clearly the best way to get new knowledge visible to the world. A world now in great need of wisdom from truth and reality.

electron has a spherical in / out wave structure. The wave-center forms
the 'particle' effect, the spherical in and out waves explain the continual
two way communication / interconnection of matter in space.
The wave center of the spherical in and out waves forms high wave amplitude coherent waves, thus this is where the wave interactions / energy exchanges occur, which gives the appearance of discrete matter 'particles'.
Light is discrete because of resonance between bound electrons, causing them to change their wave functions.
This knowledge of the Wave Structure of Matter in Space
provides us with a 'source code' from which we can deduce the truth as a
foundation for acting wisely.
Clearly humanity now faces many problems caused by myths and customs that result in endless conflict and harm. Thus knowing the truth about physical reality is critically important for our future survival on our fragile and beautiful little planet.
Basically I hope to make it obvious to people that are either sensible
and logical, or enlightened
spiritual / religious that we have worked out physical reality (matter-energy
interactions in space). To show you that we
can perfectly imagine matter interactions in space - they are just wave
Then you will understand that this whole postmodern uncertainty and skepticism arose from trying to describe an interconnected reality (where matter is a large structure of space) with many discrete and separate particles.
If you agree, please help share this knowledge. We are tantalizingly close to success, with over 600,000 page views each week and ranking in the top 5 in Bing (Microsoft / Yahoo) and top 20 in Google for many of the main subjects of human knowledge (e.g. philosophy, quantum physics, mathematical physics, theory of relativity, Einstein's relativity, cosmology, ...)
Our existence in the universe is amazing, our bodies subtly connected to
all this other matter in the space around us (this is why we can see and
interact with it). Currently humanity does not live from these 'connected'
foundations, and this 'insanity'
is causing the destruction of life on earth that will have catastrophic
consequences for all of us.
The cure is a correct understanding of physical reality and the necessary truths that are derived from this. There are many others who now realise this, that truth is the most powerful force for changing the world and saving humanity.

"The Truth is far more powerful than any weapon of mass
('Mahatma' Mohandas Gandhi)
The following articles have been re-written recently. They are the most important / useful pages for understanding how the WSM works, why I am convinced it is true.
A Letter to Philosophers, Physicists, Scientists ... I have just finished writing this short essay (27th of May 2011). It is an open letter to philosophers and scientists explaining a remarkable discovery I have only recently stumbled upon. If you describe reality most simply, from just plane waves flowing through space in all directions, you find that space vibrates in two different ways that correspond to the quantum field and the particle. You can then deduce the Dirac equation (using complex quaternion wave functions) and from this foundation you can then deduce all the main equations of modern physics. It is simple, it evolves amazing complexity, ... it seems to be true!
http://www.spaceandmotion.com/physics-quaternion-complex-plane-wave-equation.htm - My journey through quaternions, some observations, some questions. So if you like maths then read it, get involved, help. It is fascinating, it is profound!
"Time is said to have only one dimension, and space to have three
dimensions. ... The mathematical quaternion partakes of both these elements;
in technical language it may be said to be 'time plus space', or 'space
plus time': and in this sense it has, or at least involves a reference to,
four dimensions. And how the One of Time, of Space the Three, Might in the
Chain of Symbols girdled be."
(William Rowan Hamilton)
"If quaternions are used consistently in theoretical physics, we get a complete description of the physical world, with relativistic and quantum effects easily taken into account. Thus Hamilton’s idea, which motivated more then half of his professional life, that quaternions are a fundamental building block of the physical universe, appears to be essentially correct in the light of contemporary knowledge."
(Note May, 2011) Because I only discovered the above information over the past few weeks it has not been incorporated into the site yet - there is a lot more knowledge that can be now added, a few errors that need correction. So the essays below, the rest of this site, so not have this knowledge of quaternions and how to deduce reality with them.
Truth Statements on Physical Reality - These truth statements show people how to deduce physical reality for themselves and confirm it is true. It also provides a very concise summary of the central things the WSM explains. See if you can show any statement is not true.
Wave Equation in an Elastic Wave Medium - Deducing the famous energy equations, Einstein's E=mc2, Planck's E=hf and Newton's F=ma from simple wave equations in an elastic medium (space). This confirms that the equivalence of matter and energy is because matter is made of waves, and waves propagate energy. All forces are due to changes in wave velocity.
The Laws of Nature - The Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) deduces the laws of Nature that have been empirically observed and quantified over the past several centuries. This changes the foundations of science / physics from inductive (uncertain) to deductive (certain).
Metaphysics - Solving the central problem of metaphysics - what is the one active substance that causes and connects the many changing material things we experience. The solution is simple, space is a wave medium and contains wave motions. i.e. From the motion of matter particles in space and time, to the wave motion of space that causes matter and time.
Cosmology - Explaining how our observable universe exists as a finite spherical region of infinite eternal space.
Theology God Religion - Defining god in terms of the one infinite eternal substance that exists.
Free Will Vs. Determinism - How we can have limited freedom and limited determinism in a necessarily interconnected reality of waves in space.
The Insanity of Humanity - A list of the insane things that we are doing on Earth that are causing the destruction of Nature and the pollution of air, water and food - basically destroying / poisoning the things that we depend upon for our future survival. (I hope people will contribute to the list.)
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) - I am building this FAQ page as I answer questions that people have posted on this site. So help us help you by posting questions!

The task is not so much to see what no one yet has seen, but to think what no body yet has thought about that which everyone sees. ... But life is short, and truth works far and lives long: let us speak the truth. (Arthur Schopenhauer, 1818)
(Note: The following may be a bit abrupt / absolute - it is written with those wonderful ideals of Albert Einstein in mind, kindness, beauty and truth!)
True knowledge of physical reality provides us with an absolute foundation
for working out the truth for ourselves (to prevent us from being deceived
by cultural myths and past customs).
The central point to emphasise is that the solution is deduced using the accepted rules of science - most importantly Occam's Razor / Principle of Simplicity and Metaphysics / Dynamic Unity of Reality. This forces us to describe reality in terms of one substance, Space, and its wave motions that form matter (no opinions).
The first philosophy (Metaphysics) is universal and is exclusively concerned with primary substance. ... And here we will have the science to study that which is, both in its essence and in the properties which, just as a thing that is, it has. ... That among entities there must be some cause which moves and combines things. ... There must then be a principle of such a kind that its substance is activity. (Aristotle, 340BC)
It is also a significant fact that there is not another page on the internet that considers what the most simple science theory of reality is - which is strange given Occam's Razor (principle of simplicity) is fundamental to science. Thus it seems premature to claim science does not really work (the logical positivist / social construct view of postmodern science) without having considered this most simple solution (which is actually very obvious once known!).
When we see things as being separate and discrete (like the human body)
this is an illusion (naive real). In Reality matter (and thus all people)
structures of the universe, vibrating / resonating with everything in
the Space around you. We are all subtly interconnected to all other matter
in the observable
universe because we are universal creatures (which is why we can see
those stars spread across the universe, because we are a part of them, they
a part of us). Thus seeing our bodies as discrete and separate objects is
an an illusion of our limited senses (as representations of the mind).
This is the enlightenment that mystics / spiritualists and great scientists like Albert Einstein realised.
A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty… The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. … We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive. (Albert Einstein, 1954)
By understanding matter's (our) true
spatially extended nature we can easily understand the necessary connection
between things existing in space (imagine spherical waves in space flowing
through one another). This explains how the Earth can orbit the Sun, how
we can see the Stars in the night sky, i.e. these 'forces of light and gravity'
that extend across the observable universe.
From this knowledge of necessary connection we can then solve the problems of science, of physics, logic and mathematics, philosophy, metaphysics, theology and our evolution and ecology.
(There are many problems to explain, caused by the current discrete particle conception of matter, as modern academia well realises).
forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence:
Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter. ...
Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended. In this way the concept 'empty space' loses its meaning. ... Since the theory of general relativity implies the representation of physical reality by a continuous field, the concept of particles or material points cannot play a fundamental part, ... and can only appear as a limited region in space where the field strength / energy density are particularly high. (Albert Einstein, 1950)
This is one of the wonderful things about the Internet. People can be free
individuals and yet also work together on the Internet to correct past errors
both in human knowledge and in human society - and thus contribute to a
future for Humanity.
Most importantly, this knowledge of our dynamic unity with the world around us provides the foundations for the ecology of life on Earth and why the preservation of Nature is critical for our future survival. i.e. By knowing our true nature, we realise that we are a part of nature, of the ecology of life on earth as part of a larger ecology of matter in the observable universe (our true selves). We then realise how important it is to reverse the current destruction of Nature - which is effectively destroying us / our future survival. As David Bohm writes so profoundly;
The notion that all these fragments is separately existent is evidently an illusion, and this illusion cannot do other than lead to endless conflict and confusion. Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today. Thus, as is now well known, this way of life has brought about pollution, destruction of the balance of nature, over-population, world-wide economic and political disorder and the creation of an overall environment that is neither physically nor mentally healthy for most of the people who live in it. Individually there has developed a widespread feeling of helplessness and despair, in the face of what seems to be an overwhelming mass of disparate social forces, going beyond the control and even the comprehension of the human beings who are caught up in it. (David Bohm, Wholeness and the Implicate Order, 1980)
True knowledge of reality has the potential to save humanity from disaster - but it achieves nothing unless people are aware of it - and that is something that depends on you (the best we can do is to present this knowledge as simply, concisely and clearly as we can - the pages are getting better, we are working hard!).
We must not conceal from ourselves that no improvement in the present depressing situation is possible without a severe struggle; for the handful of those who are really determined to do something is minute in comparison with the mass of the lukewarm and the misguided. (Albert Einstein, 1934)

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. (Max Planck, 1920)
Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science. (Charles Darwin, Introduction to The Descent of Man, 1871)
