Since you are interested in atom smashers perhaps you will end up working in such a place.

Who? Me? I just want to work at somewhere that give me the potential to find something unknown to humans.

That is very good. It will not be impossible to find something unknown to humans bur it might be hard to make them believe it.

Copernicus due to his connections did better than Galileo or Bruno.

Connection? Did you notice that people like Copernicus and Einstein have good imagination?

Perhaps Copernicus did but as we were saying, how can we know about things before our time.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

I've lost track of what is being discussed here.

Anyway, you did not see the humor
