So, regarding those last couple of posts on quantum physics and the shape of the universe…there must have been a couple of you who thought I was either going off the deep end or completely full of shit and throwing out pseudoscience like a retard.
May I suggest you turn to page 42 of the current (July 2008) Scientific American?
That’s right, mofos. Don’t pull the thang out unless you plan to bang. Don’t even bang unless you plan to hit some thang.
Maybe I haven’t entirely burned my brain out on booze and weird drugs after all. Still got that magic, baby.
some people think of falsifiability and Popperian demarcation as the proper demesne of science. You’re more the Feyerabend type. He was fond of quoting Niels Bohr’s saying “We are all agreed that your theory is crazy. The question which divides us is whether it is crazy enough to have a chance of being correct. My own feeling is that it is not crazy enough. ” In ‘Agaisnt Method,’ I think. Then again, Bohr also said: “If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” The fact is that for me, the math gets entheogenic when tensors appear. I believe quantum mechanics is weirder than I believe it is.
