Quote of the Day

If you don’t take my words too seriously, I would say this: If we assume that all matter would disappear from the world, then, before relativity, one believed that space and time would continue existing in an empty world. But, according to the theory of relativity, if matter and its motion disappeared there would no longer be any space or time.

—Albert Einstein

Quote of the Day

Insofern sich die Sätze der Mathematik auf die Wirklichkeit beziehen, sind sie nicht sicher, und insofern sie sicher sind, beziehen sie sich nicht auf die Wirklichkeit. In so far as theories of mathematics speak about reality, they are not certain, and in so far as they are certain, they do not speak about reality.

—Albert Einstein
