You can talk about people like Buddha, Jesus, Moses, Confucius, but the thing that convinced me that such people existed were the conversations with Bohr. About his time working with Niels Bohr in Copenhagen. http://www.todayinsci.com/W/Wheeler_John/WheelerJohn-Quotations.htm I find this quote quite amusing. Does anyone know what motivated it? Or has a good theory about what motivated it?
