  • I'm quite happy with the idea of only one quanta. In fact it's another way of looking at what I said - if every quanta is alone in the quantum vacuum there is only one, or One! However, the problem I raise is still there. How does one quanta, or…
  • Probably. What is more simple than the binary system? The quantum is something. The alternative is nothing. That's all there is. But how can it be? If every quantum exists in the quantum vacuum it is effectively isolated from every other q…
  • "On an aside to this, if you happened to be the only human left when everyone vanished, what would be the first thing you would do?" Turn the gas off. Then I'd go to the Vatican's secret archives, and know for sure!
  • This, too, is a favourite area of contemplation for me and I've proposed a completely theoretical, and probably completely nonsensical, 'solution' to some perplexing questions such as the EPR paradox, the dual nature of light, what is 'consciousness…
  • I've reached the age when I am as old as my father was when I have clear memories of him, and it is those memories that look back at me out of the mirror when I shave! Interesting study, tho'. It would be interesting to know the ages of the fath…

  • "The Ship who sang" by Anne McCaffrey. It contains very little in the way of philosophy or metaphysics, the technological underpinning is, ah, non-existant and it takes about forty minutes to read from cover to cover, but Helva is just so darn nice…
  • "Godless" is an unfortunate term. An atheist is by definition godless but far too many people equate godlessness with nihilism and therefore atheism with nihilism and anarchy which is why atheism scares them silly. A reason beside Chernobyl tha…
  • On the perceiving infinity point I would offer that neither zero nor infinity can actually exist within a Newtonian universe. Zero, the non-existance of a 'thing', is a contradiction while no 'thing' can be infinite as the existance of something - …

  • G'day from New Zealand. Linked here randomly from the Atheism Online forum, to which I contribute, and was almost immediately impressed (that is to say scared into soiling my pants) by the awesome levels of IQ displayed by your contributors. It…
