Never heard it explained so well

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Feeling of confusion.

If I was able to invite six people to dinner either dead or alive this chap, one Richard P Feynman, would be first. here he explains confusion.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

My favorite Richard Feynman quote:

"Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts".

The above has served me well every time I hear people trying to use consensus to silence unpopular opinions.

Sadly, Dick died the year before I started attending Caltech. I got Physics 1 from Dr. Goodstein instead, but the legacy of Richard Feynman still perseveres at the halls of Caltech today. He was a truly great man.

It's a great quote for those who can think it through
I fear it or variants of it are often hijacked by those who cannot
