Background

A description of the experience

Sir Arthur Eddington – The Expanding Universe

It is no part of my present subject to discuss the relation of the world as conceived in physics to a wider interpretation of our experience; I will only say that that part of our conscious experience representable by physical symbols ought not to claim to be the whole.

 

Sir Arthur  Eddington – The Nature of the Physical World

In the world of physics we watch a shadowgraph performance of familiar life.  The shadow  of my elbow rests on the shadow table as the shadow ink flows over the shadow paper… The frank realisation that physical science is concerned with a world of shadows is one of the most significant of recent advances.
