This is the third OEN article I've published since last month based on, and containing extensive excerpts from, the writings of the brilliant mathematical physicist Freeman Dyson. Dyson famously travelled cross-country in America with Richard Feynman in the 1950's and in route clarified for Feynman the mathematics of his path-integral formulation of quantum mechanics; in 1965, Feynman shared the Nobel Prize with three other particle physicists for their contributions to quantum theory.
My first OEN article was dated August 6, 2010 (Hiroshima Day) and quoted from the long tribute Freeman Dyson paid to Joseph Rotblat, the only physicist at Los Alamos to stop working on the atomic bomb once Germany was defeated; Rotblat became the leader of the Pugwash Movement and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1995. My second OEN article was dated August 25 and was little more than a long quotation from some of Dyson's thoughts as a physicist; in the article, Dyson explains the most important consequence, for life on earth, of entropy. My third OEN article was dated August 27 and quoted extensively from Dyson's writings about nanotechnology and biotechnology.*
