Remarkable achievements in 2011

Dear Axel,

Happy New Year to your family and yourself and all friends and colleagues in Australia. I will ask Dave Burleigh if he can post this quote, which is an accurate and incisive one, the illusions of the human mind would keep many poets and novelists scribbling away until the end of the next century. As one Wil Shakespeare put it: ” ‘ T is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing”. An early critic of CERN.

Dear Myron,

Daniel Boorstin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_J._Boorstin) coined it well, quote:

“The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance – it is the illusion of knowledge”.

Perhaps a little corner in your website could be allocated to these words of wisdom. They might perhaps provoke some of the conformists to stop and think independently.

Happy 2012!

Kind regards,
Axel Westrenius
