"Wittgenstein once greeted me with the question: 'Why do people say that it was natural to think that the Sun went around the Earth rather than that the Earth turned on its axis?' I replied: 'I suppose, because it looked like the Sun went around the Earth.' 'Well', he asked, 'what would it have looked like if it had looked as if the Earth turned on its axis?'"
