Many recognize the wisdom of the remark Sir Isaac Newton made in a 
letter to Robert Hooke written on  5 February 1676...

"If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants"

conclude more about the universe than those before him it is because he 
is working in the light of their work and acheivements.
