Pi Day would be happy to hear this conversation, Stephen Hawking too. I was reading some of the history about the early scientists from the 1800s. It is amazing about the power of Math.

For me, it was a really key lesson, not just in science but in life, to recognize that we don’t really *know* how things work in the real world. We can only model how things work.

Indeed. It goes as far as we only know we are experiencing something (“I think therefore I am” logic). Otherwise all knowledge resides in our minds with unknown validity in its fundamental truth. Yet the bright side is that is what makes a human. It’s a highly sentient entity with the paradoxical trait of finding and incorporating information just to end up knowing more about how little it knows.

You’re making me feel like a real Smarty Pants.
