94th Birthday of Richard Feynman

Today would have been the 94th birthday of physicist Richard Feynman. Feynman was, of course, one of the most influential physicists of our time, but he was also more than that. He was a philosopher-scientist, the kind of thinker that would go to great lengths to put his terrific sum of knowledge into perspective for the rest of us, and then show us what such knowledge could mean for the very nature of existence. He gave much to the world, so much so that his contributions probably wont be fully realized for many years to come. You can get caught up by reading any of the many spectacular books he wrote on science and philosophy, if you haven’t already…

Feynman is also the subject of one of those great YouTube video series that puts great words to beautiful music and imagery. I highly suggest you visit The Feynman Series and watch the wonderful videos there. Chapter One is posted below, as an example.
