Interesting words - Freeman Dyson
"That we live in a world of overgrown toys is too obvious to need explaining. Nikolaus Otto plays for a few years with a toy gasoline engine and -- bingo -- we all find ourselves driving cars. Wallace Carothers gets interested in condensation polymers and -- zing! -- every working-class girl is wearing nylon stockings. Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann amuse themselves with analytical radiochemistry and -- boom! -- eighty thousand people in Hiroshima are dead."
Freeman Dyson
