Roger Penrose QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And these little things may not seem like much but after a while they take you off on a direction where you may be a long way off from what other people have been thinking about.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
As for morality, well that's all tied up with the question of consciousness.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
As you say, the way string theory requires all these extra dimensions and this comes from certain consistency requirements about how string should behave and so on.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
But I think it is a serious issue to wonder about the other platonic absolutes of say beauty and morality.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
But twistor theory is the thing that I would like to be remembered for most, I suppose.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
Entire lights rays - you see if you made space, each of whose points represented an entire light ray, you'd find that space had five dimensions.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
I certainly don't believe that these things like Terminator or something coming from the future who is a mechanical entity.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
I find it amusing and entertaining and I've always been a fan of science fiction. I used to read it a lot when I was younger.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
I like science fiction movies, but I think they are useful for giving us ideas and I think science fiction is very good at giving ideas.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
I used to take these maths tests which were supposed to be done in one period and it took me not just that period but the next one which was a play period and somethimes the one beyond that before I finished the test.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
I was indeed very slow as a youngster.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
I'm pretty tenacious when it comes to problems.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
If you didn't have any conscious beings in the world, there really wouldn't be morality but with consciousness that you have it.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
In fact you may be surprised by this, I was even moved down a class once because I couldn't do mental arithmetic.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
In the book, I make the point that here we have string theory and here we have twistor theory and we don't know if either one of them is the right approach to nature.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
My own way of thinking is to ponder long and I hope deeply on problems and for a long time which I keep away for years and years and I never really let them go.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
Ordinary photons do have spin, they have a notion of helicity so they spin around their direction on motion.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
People think of these eureka moments and my feeling is that they tend to be little things, a little realisation and then a little realisation built on that.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
So I think that the issue of how consciousness relates to the physical world is all tied up with morality but we have a lot to learn on that one.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
So what I'm saying is why don't we think about changing Schrodinger's equation at some level when masses become too big at the level that you might have to worry about Einstein's general relativity.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
Some years ago, I wrote a book called the Emperor's New Mind and that book was describing a point of view I had about consciousness and why it was not something that comes about from complicated calculations.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
The basic theory in twistor theory is not to add extra dimensions.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
The idea is if you use those two shapes and try to colour the plane with them so the colours match, then the only way that you can do this is to produce a pattern which never repeats itself.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
This book is about physics and its about physics and its relationship with mathematics and how they seem to be intimately related and to what extent can you explore this relationship and trust it.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
Well I didn't actually see the Matrix but I've seen other movies where with similar sorts of themes.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
Well, gauge theory is very fundamental to our understanding of physical forces these days. But they are also dependent on a mathematical idea, which has been around for longer than gauge theory has.
Quotation of Roger Penrose
Well, I don't know if I can comment on Kant or Hegel because I'm no real philosopher in the sense of knowing what these people have said in any detail so let me not comment on that too much.
