What does it mean – to understand?

I am never content until I have constructed a mathematical model of what I am studying. If I succeeded in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not. 

William Thomson (Lord Kelvin), 1824-1907.


Citiem vārdiem, saprast nozīmē spēt paredzēt ārējās pasaules notikumus. Cilvēki sevi sapratīs ap šī gadsimta beigām.
