Adopting Aristotle’s views resolves the “paradoxes” in quantum mechanics and consciousness

As it seems, the old Greek philosopher was right all along. Unfortunately, at some point in 1600 Western science abandoned its Aristotelian approach to reality and instead adopted the mechanistic, reductionist Cartesian view based on the ideas of RenĂ© Descartes, whose own work he famously summed up as “Divide each difficulty into as many parts … Read more Adopting Aristotle’s views resolves the “paradoxes” in quantum mechanics and consciousness

A piece of plastic can learn through training, just like animals

The house of cards that is modern “science” continues to crumble, albeit slowly. Several years ago I made a post on the ability of an “inanimate” piece of matter (dough) to learn simple behaviors through repetitive training, akin to the widely publicized “Pavlov dog”. The dough study references an older one, performed in the 1950s … Read more A piece of plastic can learn through training, just like animals

A fundamental tenet in quantum physics may be nothing but a scam

I have always suspected most of “advanced” quantum physics as being little more than a mathematical smokescreen. The overly complex mathematics and the fact that many of the theory’s propositions are so bizarre have resulted in quantum physics becoming an esoteric discipline, in which only the chosen ones are allowed to work, question and develop … Read more A fundamental tenet in quantum physics may be nothing but a scam

The Sun may be a significant source of gamma-ray radiation

I like this study because, in the words of one of the authors, it reveals how little we know about the closest star to our planet. The current dogma is that gamma rays can only come from outside the Solar system, and are usually the result of supernova explosion somewhere in our (or outside of) … Read more The Sun may be a significant source of gamma-ray radiation
