Dazzled, aweary

"A crazy theory of light and matter that embraced contradiction". The Secrets of Quantum Physics is available on iplayer until 29th July.

In 1979 Mohammad Abdul Salam quoted verses from the Quran during his acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize for physics, stating:

"Thou seest not, in the creation of the All-merciful any imperfection,

Return thy gaze, seest thou any fissure?

Then Return thy gaze, again and again.

Thy gaze, comes back to thee dazzled, aweary." [67:3-4]

"This, in effect, is the faith of all physicists; the deeper we seek, the more is our wonder excited, the more is the dazzlement for our gaze."
