Concepts I 538
Concept/Measurement/Knowledge/Science/Theory/Feynman: a concept or thought that cannot be measured or directly proven with an experiment can be useful - or not.
It does not need to exist in a theory.

Idea/Concept/Theory/Quantum Mechanics/Feynman: Question: Is the idea of the exact location of a particle and the exact impulse sound or not? The classical theory agrees with this, and quantum mechanics does not.
I 539
Theory/Concept/Heisenberg: the new theory (quantum mechanics) does not need to answer such questions, because such questions cannot be asked experimentally.

Measurement/Concept/Feynman: in quantum mechanics, there are many constructions that we cannot directly measure. ((s) But we always talk about them.)
