Life is a maze of never-ending mysteries;
Here I stand, on the shoulders of giants, approaching the unknown not with fear, but with wonder.
In awe I stand, thrilled by the crushing waves on the shores of the cosmic ocean;
Nature isn't meant to be conquered, but to be discovered.
In regards of the many analogies that will be used throughout this mind journey, I found a brilliant quote by theoretical physicist and one of the pioneers of quantum mechanics Niels Bohr about describing atomic models in the language of classical physics:
"We must be clear that when it comes to atoms, language can be used only as in poetry. The poet, too, is not nearly so concerned with describing facts as with creating images and establishing mental connections."
As we will generate the holistic big picture by using methods of reductionism, analogies are great tools of grouping phenomena according to their uttermost reduced key principles, and can therefore be regarded as helpful starts of analysis.
Analogies are the bridges between the isles of concepts.
Welcome to the constant metamorphosis of the concrete and the abstract!
