In this VIDEO from 1:09-2:15 Richard Feynman talk about some flying sources that he considers incorrect.

What is the theory that he refers to?

He's talking about "Flying Saucers" not flying sources.

This is even clearer when you listen at 2:00 where he refers "known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence" vs the "unknown rational characteristics of extraterrestrial intelligence".

  • $\begingroup$ Mr. Feynman speaks with a distinct New York accent. Very difficult distinguish "saucers" from "sources" in my opinion. $\endgroup$
