“The legendary Danish physicist Niels Bohr distinguished two kinds of truth. An ordinary truth is a statement who opposite is a falsehood. A profound truth is a statement whose opposite is also a profound truth. <...> we might say that an ordinary mistake is one that leads to a dead end, while a profound mistake is one that leads to progress. Anyone can make an ordinary mistake, but it takes a genious to make a profound mistake. Newton's "zeroth law" was a profound mistake.”
