world bridge

Descartes is credited as being the founder of modern science, the very temple of rationalism and reason. And yet, in 1620 when he was age 21 and in the army in Ulm, Germany (a place later to be the birthplace of Einstein), Descartes had a lucid dream in which an angel appeared to him with a message -- "The mastery of nature is to be achieved through measure and number." 

Greatly affected by this apparition, Descartes was inspired to base his following fundamental work on this message. And so, the very temple of modern science was founded on a revelation of an angelic being that spoke to Descartes from another dimension.
