"Science is not just a collection of laws, a catalogue of facts,

it is a creation of the human mind with its freely invented ideas

and concepts. Physical theories try to form a picture of reality

and to establish its connections with the wide world of sense impressions."

A. Einstein and L. Infield, The Evolution of Physics, (1939)
