Nachbilder: The man who wasn't there, 2001

«They got this guy, in Germany. Fritz Something-or-other. Or is it? Maybe it's Werner. Anyway, he's got this theory, you wanna test something, you know, scientifically - how the planets go around the sun, what sunspots are made of, why the water comes out of the tap - well, you gotta look at it. But sometimes you look at it, your looking changes it. You can't know the reality of what happened, or what would've happened if you hadn't stuck in your own goddamn schnozz. So there is no "what happened". Looking at something changes it. They call it the "Uncertainty Principle". Sure, it sounds screwy, but even Einstein says the guy's on to something. [...] I’m saying, sometimes the more you look, the less you really know. It’s a fact – a proofed fact, in a way – it’s the only fact there is. This Heini, he even wrote it out in numbers.»
