Dalí honours and commends Newton for his discovery of the lawof gravity, symbolised by the famed falling apple, represented here by a sphere of metal attached to a string, thus losing its impermanence as well as it’s incapacity for regeneration. Dalí implies that the living being, Sir Isaac NBewton, has becom a mere name in science, completely stripped of his personality and individuality, this is further symbolized by the lack of arms on the figure with two large holes: one which portrays the absence of Newton’s vital organs, while the other clearly displays the lack of mind. What remains in only symbolic representation.
