In it Whitehead kept using the words "essential object" in a particular technical way that presumably he had defined, but that I didn't understand.  Every time you break the brick, you only see the surface. That the brick has an inside is a simple theory which helps us understand things better.  "Do you think I can handle it? " I asked.  Harvey said I could join this special, advanced course provided one thing ­­ that I would do all the work, and report on papers just like everybody else. " I asked.

So that helped a little, because he recognized me, somehow.  It's all very formal and I'm thinking about where to sit down and should I sit next to this girl, or not, and how should I behave, when I hear a voice behind me.  Eisenhart, pouring tea.  So that was my first experience with this tea business.  Eisenhart, somebody was kissing her hand as he left. " and I kept talking to Wildt.  Eisenhart, who's pouring tea.  The whole idea of this "heh­heh­heh" was: Mrs. "; I knew the "heh­heh­heh" meant "error," and I'd better get it straightened out.

I told him, and continued writing the equations.  I remember very clearly seeing my hands shaking as they were pulling out my notes from a brown envelope.  I was only explaining this idea, that's all. " Einstein says, "Nooooooooooooo," a nice, German­sounding "No," ­­ very polite. " Einstein appreciated that things might be different from what his theory stated; he was very tolerant of other ideas.  And by the time the seminar came around, he realized he didn't know how to do it, and therefore didn't have anything to say.
