Philosophy Wire: Measurement. Non-measurement. Wisdom.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-07-11]: Physicists have overcome a major challenge in the science of measurement using quantum mechanics, thus developing ultra-precise measurement technologies. [1] Measure. Measure again. Measure again. Measure again with the greatest accuracy you wish. There will always be an old man sitting under a tree, wise in his ignorance, who will not know how to measure but will always know everything better than you. Now measure again. How stupid you are.
