A Commonplace Book - Weekend
I worked in the physics of elementary particles. And I actually lived through a very interesting phase in that subject, when one saw, for the first time, a new pattern of structure in the world that was very beautiful, and concise, and that could be expressed in mathematics. All of us who were a part of this enterprise were left with a sene of wonder at the beautiful structure of the world. It seemed to me that it was the mind of God that was being discerned.
