The Other I

I wish I’d said that!

I’m smart enough to know that I’m dumb

Richard Feynman, American nobel-prize physicist

Impresses me as a better alternative than “I’m too smart to be wrong.”

    • Return thanks for your comment. As I suspect you know, feedback like yours helps keep a cyber-engine running. It certainly does mine.

  2. Some great YouTube videos. My favorite: a talk he gave (in shorts) to a group of students back in the ’80s on how a computer works. Talk about stupid! You’ll never again worry about computers becoming human-like.

    • I hope you are right! Right now I think some of our politicians might compete with Feynman’s computers on the stupidity measure.

      You often refer to YouTube videos which sound really interesting. But I think you take in more information auditorially than I do. I’ve always needed to read and write — despite my poor eyesight. Except for music, of course, which I process quite differently.
