There was a time when the news­pa­pers said that only twelve men un­der­stood the the­ory of rel­a­tiv­ity. I do not be­lieve there ever was such a time. There might have been a time when only one man did, be­cause he was the only guy who caught on, be­fore he wrote his pa­per.

On the other hand, I think I can safely say that no­body un­der­stands quan­tum me­chan­ics.
