艾伦·古斯(Alan Guth)名言

If laws are just properties of objects, how can those laws continue to operate when the object is not really there?

如果定律只是物体的性质,那么当物体不存在的时候,这些定律怎么能继续运行呢?

From the time I was a student, I think I was very confident in my raw abilities. I would think that, given a problem, I was as likely to solve it as anybody. But that's not enough in science to succeed, really.

从我还是学生的时候起,我就对自己的能力非常有信心。我想,如果有问题,我和任何人一样有可能解决它。但这在科学上还不足以成功,真的。

It is rather fantastic to realize that the laws of physics can describe how everything was created in a random quantum fluctuation out of nothing, and how over the course of 15 billion years, matter could organize in such complex ways that we have human beings sitting here, talking, doing things intentionally.

认识到物理定律可以描述万物是如何在一个随机的量子涨落中从无到有地被创造出来的,以及在150亿年的过程中,物质是如何以如此复杂的方式组织起来的,以至于我们有人类坐在这里,有意无意地说话、做事。

艾伦·古斯

I think I always wanted to go into physics. What always fascinated me about science was the desire to understand what underlies it all, and I think physics is basically the study of that.

我想我一直想学物理。科学总是让我着迷的是,我渴望了解这一切背后的原因,我认为物理学基本上就是对这一点的研究。

It's not a coincidence that the Bible starts with Genesis. Most people really want to know where we came from and where everything around us came from. I like to strongly push the scientific answer. We have evidence. We no longer have to rely on stories we were told when we were young.

圣经从创世记开始并不是巧合。大多数人真的想知道我们从哪里来,我们周围的一切从哪里来。我喜欢强烈地提出科学的答案。我们有证据。我们不再需要依赖我们年轻时听到的故事。

It was sort of assumed, from the time I was born, really, that I would go to college. That's sort of the way that Jewish families in New Jersey handled things; that was the norm.

从我出生的时候起,人们就以为我会上大学。新泽西的犹太家庭就是这样处理事情的;这是常态。

Space is certainly something more complicated than the average person would probably realize. Space is not just an empty background in which things happen.

空间肯定比一般人可能意识到的更复杂。空间不仅仅是发生事情的空背景。

If there's no limit to how big the entropy can get, then you can start anywhere, and from that starting point, you'd expect entropy to rise as the system moves to explore larger and larger regions of phase space.

如果对熵的大小没有限制,那么你可以从任何地方开始,从这个起点开始,你会期望熵会随着系统的移动而上升,探索越来越大的相空间区域。
