Feynman y el deseo de trancender

If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be
destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next
generation of creatures, what statement would contain the
most information in the fewest words? I believe it is the
atomic hypothesis that All things are made of atomslittle
particles that that move around in perpetual motion,
attracting each other when they are a little distance apart,
but repelling upon being squeezed into one another. In that
one sentence, you will see, there is an enormous amount of
information about the world, if just a little imagination and
thinking are applied. (Richard Feynman)
