Quote of the Day
Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.
Robert A. Heinlein
Everyone knows nowadays that people 'have complexes'. What is not so well known, though far more important theoretically, is that complexes can have us.
It is theoretically possible to warp spacetime itself, so you're not actually moving faster than the speed of light, but it's actually space that's moving.
Faith means belief in something concerning which doubt is theoretically possible.
I didn't get my licence because I wasn't allowed to. But I haven't had a seizure for a long time so I could, theoretically, get my licence. But I'm now just so used to not driving, I'm scared of what I'd do.
I think the brain is essentially a computer and consciousness is like a computer program. It will cease to run when the computer is turned off. Theoretically, it could be re-created on a neural network, but that would be very difficult, as it would require all one's memories.
And gradually they're beginning to recognize the fact that there's nothing more secure than a democratic, accountable, and participatory form of government. But it's sunk in only theoretically, it has not yet sunk in completely in practical terms.
Whenever anyone says, 'theoretically,' they really mean, 'not really.'
Without needing to be theoretically instructed, consciousness quickly realizes that it is the site of variously contending discourses.
SF is the literature of the theoretically possible, and F is the literature of the impossible.
It is beyond dispute that President Obama and his aides have an extreme, even unprecedented obsession with concealing embarrassing information, controlling the flow of information, and punishing anyone who stands in the way.

The theoretically unrestricted right to develop power, to wage war against other states, is antisocial and is doubly dangerous, because the state as a mass entity represents a low moral and intellectual level.
Christian Lous Lange

Charles Francis Richter

Lee De Forest

The thing I love about political interviews is, if you're really prepared, you can make great headway because these are the people for whom, theoretically at least, the buck stops.
Democracy may mean something more than a theoretically absolute popular government, but it assuredly cannot mean anything less.
