@kubernite Many thanks! @MutuaKiluti @ainissaramirez https://t.co/eg98NwA27T @pascalkwanten Weyl died in 1955. The sketch is from 1983. I don't know who it is supposed to be. @rainazar My pleasure. @kubernite Everyone can ponder the universe in their own way and derive a sense of purpose through their own creative expression. @kubernite He was one cool cat.
