Funny how a quote from a comic book has found its way into even the most serious of discussions…but that doesn’t make the quote any less applicable. It fits. Stan Lee would be proud.

For those who might like to read more concerning how deeply Szilard’s efforts informed FDR’s order to begin the Manhattan Project, read Richard Rhodes’ Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Making Of The Atomic Bomb”.

Lastly, I didn’t know Wigner was a friend of Szilard. I wrote an article that included how Wigner’s most famous thought experiment — “Wigner’s Friend” — was recently demonstrated in a lab…and perhaps proved the “Many Worlds Interpretation”. It’s mind-bending stuff.
