"Yes, oh universe,
without you I would not have been able to come into being.
Yet you, great system,
are made of phenomeny;
and every phenomenon rests on an act of observation.
You could never even exist
without elementary acts of registration such as mine."

Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press. S. 182-200. p. 199 (Original in: The American Philosophical Society and The Royal Society: Papers read at a meeting, June 5, 1980.
