The Wu Li Masters of MIT

In the classic book, 'The Dancing Wu Li Masters' Gary Zukav postulates that Physicists who try to understand reality are like people who try to figure out how a closed watch works from the outside. Physicists(Wu Li Masters) postulate a theory. When the theory does not fit the evidence, they dance around their original theory and explain the discrepancy, with a modified theory. Thus Wu Li Masters don't explain reality. They merely dance with it.

Not all Wu Li masters are Physicists. Some of them teach at Sloan and MIT.
