Great minds think alike. When I talked to Murray Gell-Mann years ago, it was clear to us that we had a similar thinking about many issues – and we were excited and upset about similar things and for similar reasons, too.
So when Stephen Wolfram remembered Gell-Mann, I appreciated Wolfram’s intelligence, ego, and unusual stories from Wolfram’s life but I also felt like being almost in Gell-Mann’s skin. Gell-Mann would be annoyed by that text by Wolfram, I am sure – so I exploited the opportunity to be somewhat annoyed on behalf of Gell-Mann. If you ask me, I can enumerate the places where Wolfram is just wrong.
