Overview

“If I say that I do NOT believe in the conservation of energy then the professors of physics will say that I am asinine, as I am a layman. If I say that I DO believe in the conservation of energy then the reader of this journal will say that I am asinine, as I am a scientist. Where is that Robert Mayer who can tell me where my childhood's energy is? This is why I do not believe in the conservation of energy.”
