Einstein on radio

From Albert Einstein’s address to the Seventh German Radio Exhibition at Berlin (1930):

One ought to be ashamed to make use of the wonders of science embodied in a radio set, the while appreciating them as little as a cow appreciates the botanic marvels in the plants she munches.

  1. The simple statement but touches on a depth of thinking about our existence and unconcern for the unseen consequences of what we do, and the confusion about what matters and what seems not to Matter.
    The degree of complexity is not a a measure of worth to the existence of man and other creatures.
