Is one's life planned?

In 1958 , Pauli fell ill with pancreatic cancer . When his last assistant,Charlws Enz , visited him at the Rotkreuz hospital in Zurich , Pauli asked him: Did you see the room number ? . \(\color{blue}{It~was~\boxed{137}}\). Throughout his life , Pauli had been preoccupied with the question of why the fine structure constant , a dimensionless fundamental constant , has a value nearly equal to \(\color{red}{\dfrac{1}{\boxed{137}}}\) . Pauli died in that room on 15 December 1958.

If I'm not wrong, when Pauli was placed in room 137, he told his assistant that it was "the end". Nicole Tay · 1 year, 6 months ago
