„Never mind what two tons refers to. What is it?“

— Arthur Stanley Eddington, Context: Never mind what two tons refers to. What is it? How has it entered in so definite a way into our exprerience?

Let us pass on. … And so we see that the poetry fades out of the problem, and by the time the serious application of exact science begins we are left only with pointer readings. Ch. 7 Pointer Readings <!-- p. 252 -->
