"The task of physical science is to provide us a model in terms of which we can understand our universe..The ideal model would be one single picture-- that is to say, one theory-- to which we could confidently refer all of the phenomena that we observe. There is no reason to suppose that there is such an all embracing theory, but this does not prevent us from seeking simplicity and a minimum of major principles. We will then look to experiments and ideas and hypotheses and more experiments to guide us toward the large generalizations of physics-- the fundamental concepts that apply to a wide area of experience.
