Q1: Feynman’s Question:
If in some cataclysm, all of scientific
knowledge were to be destroyed, and
only one sentence passed on to the
next generation of creatures, what
statement would contain the most
information in the fewest words?
The Feynman Lectures on Physics,
Vol. 1, Chapter 1, Section 1.2
9
Feynman’s answer:
Matter is made of atoms
“In that one sentence, you will
see, there is an enormous
amount of information about
the world, if just a little
imagination and thinking is
applied.”
