The objection that they are not crazy enough applies to all the attempts which have
so far been launched at a radically new theory of elementary particles.It applies especially to crackpots.Most of the crackpot papers that are submitted to the Physical Review are rejected, not because it is impossible to understand
them, but because it is possible.Those that are
impossible to understand are usually published.When the
great innovation appears, it will almost certainly be in a muddled, incomplete, and confusing
form.To the discoverer himself it will be only
half-understood.To everybody else it
will be a mystery.For any speculation that does not at first
glance look crazy, there is no hope.
