"The Joy of Pulling things Apart"
Before I wanted to be a physicist – I mean, really wanted to become a physicist – I learned the joy of tinkering. I am sure it started earlier than when I remember it actually happening (memory is funny that way), the first first recollection I have of fully losing my fear of pulling the …http://steve.cooleysekula.net/blog/feed/ )

If you've truly understood a thing, you can't make the problem worse (it's already broken) and you might make it better! Our knowledge of the universe is broken, in that it's incomplete: try to fix it. You probably can't make things worse. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1146836524916514816/photo/1
