MATHEMATICS: "If Mathematics was not "nothing would have been" no wheel and no computer, no press and no phone, no Computer Science or Cybernetics.

(February 1, 2010, M.Vlada)

TECHNOLOGY & MAGIC: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." (Arthur C. Clarke)

NEORONS & STARS: "1011 = The number of neurons in the Human Brain = The number of stars in the Galaxy". (2010, Source: The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, USA ,
