QuantumMAN™ understands his skills may be met with skepticism. He therefore offers the following quotations for such skeptics to ponder:
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger; who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Arthur C. Clarke, "Profiles of The Future", 1961 (Clarke's third law)
"Do not let yourself be tainted with a barren skepticism."
"Skepticism is slow suicide"
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow."
"Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible."
"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away."
Phllip K. Dick
"The universe is wider than our views of it."
Henry David Thoreau
"There is no better soporific and sedative than skepticism."
" ...By far the most usual way of handling phenomena so novel that they would make for a serious rearrangement of our preconceptions is to ignore them altogether, or to abuse those who bear witness to them."
"All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed; Second, it is violently opposed; and Third, it is accepted as self-evident."
" The whole of science consists of data that, at one time or another, were inexplicable."
" The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand."
"Let the mind be enlarged...to the grandeur of the mysteries, and not the mysteries contracted to the narrowness of the mind."
" Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible."
"Skepticism is the sadism of embittered souls"
Emile M. Cioran
"It is better to believe than disbelieve; in so doing, you bring everything to the realm of possibility."
"All things are possible with God."
