A Quote by Alfred North Whitehead on apologies, facts, nature, regret, and responsibility

I regret that it has been necessary for me in this lecture to administer a large dose of four-dimensional geometry. I do not apologize, because I am really not responsible for the fact that nature in its most fundamental aspect is four-dimensional. Things are what they are.

Alfred Whitehead (1861 - 1947)
