Every brilliant theory in physics, for example, has been proven mainly wrong, except for the most recent ones, which will be. The big players, like Newton and Copernicus, gave us answers that were later proved more wrong than right. What they did-and why they are valued-is direct our attention to more piercing and compelling questions or possibilities. (I'd suggest the same holds true for the big spiritual players, but that's a different letter.)
