Carlo Rovelli

In the twentieth century, two remarkable visions of our world emerged: Einstein's general relativity theory and quantum mechanics. General relativity provides insights into how things work, explaining the interactions between the cosmos and massive objects. On the other hand, quantum mechanics delves into the microscopic realm of atoms and particles. These two theories have significantly contributed to our understanding of the universe, but they also contradict one another. As a result, scientists are actively searching for new theories that can unify the laws of nature. In the meantime, it is crucial to remember that humans are not mere observers but are also bound by the laws of modern physics.
