1. I'd like to see a source for that first quote
Edited on Sat Jul-23-11 08:26 AM by Orrex
"Optical delusion" seems a more trite play on words than I usually associate with Einstein.

On edit: Whoops. Found it myself. Funny what you can see when you look.

Though I'm still surprised that he used that phrase.
