"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

Fool's gold catches eye of solar energy researchers

January 21, 2011 By Tiffany Hsu

I must whole heartedly agree: solar energy research is indeed comparable to fool's gold.
