"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

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

"UMass researcher points to suppression of evidence on radiation effects by 1946 Nobel Laureate"

Of course, if we were processing our groceries with low level radiation, food borne illnesses would be nearly a thing of the past. But the media invokes images of Frankenstein's monster anytime the word "radiation" is uttered. (Mary Shelley's monster was as much of an attack on her husband's love of discovery as on Ben Franklin, by the way.)
