86,176.  In the 1920s physicist Niels Bohr found that Newton’s Laws break down at the atomic level.  The replacement Quantum Theory ... showed that the electron orbiting the atomic nucleus doesn’t look like this at all.  It’s more smudged out, more like a ripple or a wave.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle)  Horizon: The Anthropic Principle 1987

 

86,177.  We have to record some kind of measurement to know where an electron is.  In fact, until we decide to find out where the electron is by doing an experiment to observe it the electron as a material entity cannot be really said to exist.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle)  ibid.

 

86,178.  That by our acts of observation we bring things into existence, at least in the realm of the very small, is supported by scientific experiment.  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle)  ibid.

 

86,179.  If we bring the tiny world of the Quantum to existence by our observations, do we need any other mechanism to account for the whole of reality?  (Quantum Physics & Reality & Observation & Experiment & Electron & Anthropic Principle)  ibid.

 

 

86,187.  The measurement problem ... An atom only appears in a particular place if you measure it.  In other words an atom is spread out all over the place until a conscious observer decides to look at it.  So the act of measurement or observation creates the entire universe.  (Quantum Physics & Atom & Measurement & Reality & Observation & Experiment)  Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Atom: The Illusion of Reality

 

 

2,430.  For the truth of the conclusions of physical science, observation is the supreme Court of Appeal.  (Science & Observe)  Arthur Eddington, The Philosophy of Physical Science 1938

 

 

2,450.  This is the key of modern science and is the beginning of the true understanding of nature.  This idea.  That to look at the things, to record the details, and to hope that in the information thus obtained, may lie a clue to one or another of a possible theoretical interpretation.  (Science & Nature & Idea & Observation & Theory &  Interpretation)  Richard Feynman, The Character of Physical Law 1955 

 

 

3,003.  To command the professors of astronomy to confute their own observations is  ... to command them not to see what they do see,  and not to understand what they do understand.  (Astronomy & Observation & Understanding)  Galileo Galilei

 

 

3,283.  If the expansion of the space of the universe is uniform in all directions, an observer located in anyone of the galaxies will see all other galaxies running away from him at velocities proportional to their distances from the observer.  (Big Bang & Universe & Space & Observe & Galaxy)  George Gamow  

 

 

5,852.  The errors can’t be taken out of the observations.  (Evolution & Science & Physics & Observe & Humanity)  Jacob Bronowski, The Ascent of Man: Knowledge or Certainty ***** 11/13

 

 

6,688.  The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.  (Intelligence & Observe)  Jiddu Krishnamurti

 

 

6,826.  There are three kinds of men.  The ones that learn by readin’.  The few who learn by observation.  The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.  (Learning & Reading & Observation)  Will Rogers

 

 

9,785.  Nothing exists until or unless it is observed.  An artist is making something exist by observing it.  And his hope for other people is that they will also make it exist by observing it.  I call it ‘creative observation’. ‘Creative viewing’.  (Art & Observation)  William S Burroughs, Ports of Entry

 

 

10,479.  He [Leonardo] privileged observation over perceived wisdom.  (Art & Observation & Wisdom)  Professor Rona Goffen, Rutgers University

 

 

10,653.  It’s on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way.  So we must dig and delve unceasingly.  (Art & Observe)  Claude Monet
 

 

83,483.  To observations which ourselves we make,

We grow more partial for th’ observer’s sake.  Alexander Pope, Epistles to Several Persons 1735    

 

 

83,484.  Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life.  (Observation & Investigation)  Marcus Aurelius

 

 

83,485.  This inescapable duty to observe oneself: if someone else is observing me, naturally I have to observe myself too; if none observe me, I have to observe myself all the closer.  Franz Kafka

 

 

83,486.  The philosopher forms his principles from an infinity of particular observations.  Most people adopt principles without thinking of the observations that have produced them, they believe the maxims exist, so to speak, by themselves.  But the philosopher takes maxims from their source; he examines their origin; he knows their proper value, and he makes use of them only in so far as they suit him.  (Observation & Philosophy)  Denis Diderot, L’Encyclopédie 

 

 

83,487.  In the field of observation chance favours only the preferred mind.  Louis Pasteur 

 

 

83,488.  We ought, in every instance, to submit our reasoning to the test of experiment, and never to search for truth but by the natural road of experiment and observation.  (Observation & Experiment)  Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier

 

 

71,901. Experiment is fundamentally only induced observation.  (Experiment & Observation)  Claude Bernard

 

 

83,489.  How odd it is that anyone should not see that all observation must be for or against some view if it is to be of any service!  Charles Darwin, letter to Henry Fawcett 18th Sep 1861

 

 

83,490.  I am a firm believer, that without speculation there is no good and original observation.  Charles Darwin, letter to A R Wallace 22nd December 1857

 

 

87,967.  You see, but you do not observe.  (See & Observe)  Arthur Conan Doyle, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes 1892

 

 

95,252.  When the Present has latched its postern behind my tremulous stay,

And the May month flaps its glad green leaves like wings,

Delicate-filmed as new-spun silk, will the neighbours say,

‘He was a man who used to notice such things’?  Thomas Hardy, Afterwards
