John A. Wheeler

Nenhuma teoria física que cuide apenas da física deverá explicar a física.
Creio que à medida que procuramos tentar compreender o universo, estamos também a tentar compreender o homem.
Começamos a desconfiar que o homem não é apenas uma pequena engrenagem que não chega a fazer qualquer diferença na vasta máquina em funcionamento; em vez disso há um vínculo muito mais profundo entre o homem e o universo do que até hoje suspeitávamos.

Savant Syndrome describes a person having both a severe developmental or mental handicap and extraordinary mental abilities not found in most people....There is some research that suggests that it can be induced, which might support the view that savant abilities are latent within all people but are obscured by the normal functioning intellect. By the help of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation researchers are providing empirical evidence for the hypothesis that savant-like skills can be improved in a healthy individual by temporary disruption of the left front part of the brain - at least with some of the probates.
