Test of Time

Mark Vernon, while recommending reading the work of the first quantum physicists, posted this quote....

'A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.' Max Planck

That has been true of a good many ideas. For some reason it immediately brought to mind the unconnected, yet somehow cosmically related, death of Jesse Helms and success of Barack Obama.
