# Some of the most profound statements on the nature of science have come from Albert Einstein, one of the greatest scientists of all time. What do you think did Einstein mean when he said: “The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible”?

Answer :

The complexity content of this world is very high. Almost everything in this world is equated in terms of mass, time and length. In spite of all this, all the physical phenomena can be explained with very few basic principles of Physics. So basically, Einstein meant to say that despite such complexities, it is possible to simplify the world with some basic laws of Physics.
