Re: 2 ways to be an expert: Science or Fake it.
Haha, yeah. You do that, Ant. Let that wisdom shine down!
Like this for instance. Let me bask in this radiant display of knowledge!
There certainly are experts in quantum physics. And Deepak Chopra is certainly not one of them. You like to think that the "quantum" must mean "nobody knows anything about this" physics.
Knows what he is talking about.
Doesn't know what he's talking about.
The physicists who use this know exactly what the standard model says is going to happen when they make their calculations. To a ludicrous degree of accuracy. Better predictions than have ever been made, by anybody else, using any other method, ever.
So these guys are all wandering around with a blind fold on?
What i've explained to you before and you've worked very hard not to aknowledge, is that what's difficult is to try to picture the interactions of QM in your head in terms of objects on human scales. Not in how QM works. They know perfectly well how it works. It's just hard to wrap your brain around it.
If by that you mean, with more accuracy than anything that has ever been uttered by a human mouth in history, you are right on the mark.
But what you are really complaining about here is that we've nailed down the how of QM, but not the why. We don't know the why, but that hasn't prevented us from using it to revolutionize the world. How you like that computer? Well the transistors that make it work rely on quantum mechanics. And you know computers, just whizzing boxes full of who-knows-what...
Nobody knows anything about them.
To you, it may sound unsatisfying. But so what if you are not satisfied? I have had no difficulty saying things to you that i know you won't like to hear. Hasn't made me side step saying them.
And once again you are pushing your failing off onto others. You think people dodge meta questions BECAUSE they don't imply an underlying intelligence? No. They give answers to you which don't imply an underlying intelligence, so you THINK those answers are a dodge. Because they didn't say what you wanted them to say. So they must be avoiding "the truth". Understand?
You came to the table expecting everyone to point at a mysterious invisible entity which set everything up, then get sad when they not only don't say that, but seemingly are perfectly fine with the evidence which suggests one isn't even necessary.
On what basis, exactly? Is the fact that Chopra went to medical school, and after having studied what has been demonstrated to work for certain, instead chose the path of "alternative" medicine, which has not been demonstrated to work in the least as his career path... is that what's impressed you about his credentials?
This just makes him more of an idiot.
And in any case, i consider your credibility here pretty low, so i am not overly concerned to hear you would rather hear Deepak Chopra than me.
Anyway, carry on Anting.
