I am so grateful. All this time I thought Trump had invented a new obnoxious word, "bigly," as a synonym for "huge." Thanks to today's [Doonesbury] strip I realize he's actually been saying "big league." Not since I discovered that Creedence Clearwater Revival was singing about "a bad moon on the rise" and not "a bathroom on the right" have I felt so enlightened.

Neils Bohr-----"The objective world of nineteenth-century science was, as we know today, an ideal, limiting case, but not the whole reality."----------------" The fact that religions through the ages have spoken in images, parables, and paradoxes means simply that there are no other ways of grasping the reality to which they refer. But that does not mean that it is not a genuine reality. And splitting this reality into an objective and a subjective side won't get us very far."---------------------------For a parallel to the lesson of atomic theory regarding the limited applicability of such customary idealizations, we must in fact turn to quite other branches of science, such as psychology, or even to that kind of epistemological problems with which already thinkers like Buddha and Lao Tzu have been confronted, when trying to harmonize our position as spectators and actors in the great drama of existence. Speech on quantum theory at Celebrazione del Secondo Centenario della Nascita di Luigi Galvani, Bologna, Italy (October 1937)

seth---------------You are like children with a game, and you think that the game is played by everyone. Physical life is not the rule. Identity and consciousness existed long before your earth was formed. You suppose that any personality must appear in physical terms. Consciousness is the force behind matter, and it forms many other realities besides the physical one. It is, again, your own viewpoint that is presently so limited that it seems to you that physical reality is the rule and mode of existence.

The source and power of your present consciousness has never been physical, and where I am, many are not even aware that such a physical system exists.

The physical system is an illusion, but you must accept it and from your viewpoint try to understand the realities that exist beyond it.

I don't doubt that Russians used to discount everything official. I've known lots of people from the former Soviet bloc states.

But the propaganda machinery has become so much more subtle and pervasive.
People might ignore official statements made by the Kremlin, but they do trust one or two Russian media sources, even though all are under state control. Russian TV, which is by far the most common source of news, very often cut and pastes western TV programmes that make western leaders look bad and Russia good; or make it seem that the West is about to invade- think of all the nuclear attack drills this year.
In addition, Russia is targeting Russian expats in other countries with fake news about how bad their chosen residence is: take the fake case of the Russian girl raped and killed by Muslim refugees in Germany:. It was widely believed by the Russian community, making them stage big protests.
Or the total fabrications about Ukraine.

Most Russians do not escape the bubble created for them by the Kremlin.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
- Douglas Adams

“It has occurred to me lately—I must confess with some shock at first to my scientific sensibilities—that both questions [the origin of consciousness in humans and of life from non-living matter] might be brought into some degree of congruence. This is with the assumption that mind, rather than emerging as a late outgrowth in the evolution of life, has existed always as the matrix, the source and condition of physical reality—that stuff of which physical reality is composed is mind-stuff. It is mind that has composed a physical universe that breeds life and so eventually evolves creatures that know and create: science-, art-, and technology-making animals. In them the universe begins to know itself.”

- George Wald, (Noble laureate and professor of biology at Harvard University) wrote this in an article entitled “Life and Mind in the Universe” which appeared in the peer-reviewed journal the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry: Quantum Biology, symposium 11 (1984): 1-15.

"You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time." -- attributed tenuously to Abraham Lincoln; the earliest reference so far found in in English is from September 9, 1885, by a judge named William. J. Groo who did not give it any attribution; there is, however, a possible French source from as far back as 1684 which goes:

...ont pû tromper quelques hommes, ou les tromper tous dans certains lieux & en certains tems, mais non pas tous les hommes, dans tous les lieux & dans tous les siécles.

...and can be translated (in one possible way) as:

"...one can fool some men, or fool all men in some places and times, but one cannot fool all men in all places and ages."

Probably said neither by Twain nor Rogers, still appropriate.

Bummer for you then, that Niels Bohr was an atheist.


As were/are 90% of physicists after 1900, including Einstein, despite the numerous, pitiful, dishonest attempts of god-botherers to co-opt a few poetic metaphors he spoke. He himself said very candidly that he didn't believe in any god who rewards and punishes, and that he had never tried to conceal this view.

At least one guy out in the Midwest understood this and told him to "take your evil theory of evolution and go back where you came from." (Darwin/Einstein---all the same to this guy. In other words, people who think they are better than him because they understand something he doesn't.)
