    Yes, that's why I threw in the Trek pic.

    For some actual science, these are fallstreak holes.

    "So...um...

    "...
    puzzled by Neil’s Bohr and his follower’s lack of interest in interconnectedness.

    Bohr claimed quantum theory was complete and it was not possible to arrive at any clearer understanding. He said it is ‘uncertain’ so why try to figure it out!

    Sadly, Bohr’s views became entrenched in the scientific mainstream. Alternatives were (and are) viewed as heresy. Bohr thought differences were primarily philosophical not scientific. He did not recognize that philosophy and science are interdependent concepts in a unified cosmos.



    Dr. Bohm “warned of the dangers of rampant reason and technology, advocating instead the need for genuine supportive dialogue, which he claimed could broaden and unify conflicting and troublesome divisions in the social world…[His] main concern was with understanding the nature of reality in general and of consciousness in particular as a coherent whole, which according to Bohm is never static or complete but rather an unfolding process.”2





    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Plasma is a gas containing a high density of electrons and positive ions.

    Dr. Bohm found that once in the plasma the subatomic particles stopped behaving like individuals and behaved as a part of a larger interconnected whole.

    The plasma produced effects of extreme self-organization.

    Dr. Bohm had the impression the electron sea was ‘alive’. Entire oceans of particles were behaving as if it knew what untold trillions of others were doing.

    I'm currently reading the recent Scientific American special issue on physics. I read until my mind collapses, then move on to the next article. Sometimes I make it all the way through. I find the subject fascinating, Captain.

    Physicists are pushing into the extreme ends of the universe as we know it—from invisible particles and colliding massive black holes to the most crushing gravitational forces ever detected and spooky quantum entanglement.

    Just in case a question comes up on my next drivers test regarding such concepts.

    i especially enjoy in this quote the holysmokesgollygeewhillakers breathless awe toward something (ie physics) that in the end is a description of home.

    yeah, I've been banging my head against that wall forever.
    Shoulda gone to school and learned some of the math...

    Maybe my favorite line ever is by Oppenheimer
    "If we can't disprove Bohm, then we must continue to ignore him".
    Well, Bob, that was then.... and times they are a -changin'...

    Tourists visiting the 1,280-foot crater of the atomic test code-named Sedan, an experiment to determine the feasibility of using nuclear explosions for mining. I kid you not. This 1962 blast was detonated less than 200m below the surface, and resulted in greater civilian exposure to fallout than any other. It is the largest man-made crater in the US and also a national historic site.

    In the way that (according to some things I've read and liked) a certain unexplained
    intelligence seems to be built into everything, operating from quantum levels on up,
    in ways that make the entire universe (to infinity and beyond) act like one giant
    creative something or other, yes:whistling::thumb:.
