I never realized that Stephen Wolfram and Richard Feynman had any contact, and this letter confirms many suspicions I've had about Wolfram's research into cellular automata.
"It is not my opinion that the present organizational structure of science inhibits 'complexity research' - I do not believe such an institution is necessary." .... "You don’t understand 'ordinary people.' To you they are 'stupid fools' - so you will not tolerate them or treat their foibles with tolerance or patience - but will drive yourself wild (or they will drive you wild) trying to deal with them in an effective way."
From Feynman's letter to Wolfram.
