Science requires an open mind, or you won't learn anything new.

First - The comment prior to Sam.... I take that as quite offensive.  I am a person without faith or belief in any god or god-like thing. 

 

Second - Sam... I already have all of his books.  He is one of my favorite authors.

This vook by Victor Stenger has been recommended to me a number of times, so I will pass it along.

If you are open to believing things like quantum anything on an every-day scale, or negative or positive "energies" or reading someone's "electrical field" or any other kind of woo, you might as well believe in god. It works out to the same thing.

If it might be wishful thinking or delusion, or it might be some complicated unproved hypothetical variant of quantum mechanics, I'd suggest Occam's Razor applies.

I will be pulling out my "Compendium of Quantum Physics" tonight to review quantum decoherence.

Thank you for letting me know.

Comment by Terri Harshman on October 24, 2011 at 2:05pm
It sounds like I need to re-read some of my quantum mechanics books again....lol

Yes, it is important to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.
Comment by Terri Harshman on October 24, 2011 at 1:44pm

I will be the first to acknowledge that I do not know everything about anything, but I also know that we as a people know very very very little about anything at all.  It is best, in my opinion again, too keep an open mind and not dismiss something bases on a word "quantum".  It is often overlooked that it not only researches the very small but it also focuses on the very large as well.

 

As one of my favorite sayings go, "Of course science doesn't know everything, otherwise it would stop".

I am open to the possibility of negative positive energies.  I know some people that have has some experiences, that leave me wondering.  I haven't had anything happen to me but...I have seen it with other people.   Sometimes, I feel I am an empath, but then I wonder if it's just a case of me being able to read body language really well.  idk.  Sometimes, I meet people and with in a few minute can tell them detailed things that happened to them in their past.  if it's something bad, i feel really sick, if it's something good, I am all joyous.  but, like I said not sure what that's all about.  could be i can read body language really well or something.
