    The Higgs Boson Particle Isn't A Particle - Why The Search For Subatomic Particles Is An Illusion

    Physicists are a great bunch of folks. They're bright and imaginative, but just like professionals in any other field of science, when educated under the same organized system of beliefs they have the ability to cluster together and share some rather remarkable delusions. The...

    "I Think, Therefore I Am." - Rene Descartes

     We create our own realities, as suggested by Jane Roberts in her 'Seth Speaks' books. Adepts of Eastern philosophy have long since believed that we are creating parallel universes with our thoughts and emotions, and modern-day theoretical physicists  reinforce these...

    I Like Quantum Physics And Relativity.

    As introduction, read : Quantum mechanics, also known as quantum physics or quantum theory, is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...

    Quantum Mechanics...

    I was introduced to quantum mechanics, in relation to the mind, in a Psychology class. Now, I've researched it a bit more and find the entire arena fascinating. I'd love to learn more though...there are still a few things I'm unclear about.... :)

    I don't really understand it.

    One of My Stranger Hobbies

    High school. 199something. We studied it for an extra-curricular thing, and it became a hobby. I'm too dumb to really get it, I think, but I love treating it like philosophy. :) Nothing more stimulating than an intense conversation about theoretical science.

    Sometimes I Don't Know What To Do With My Life

    You read it right. I'm in my early 20s and I know I have a lot of potential but there are times when I just don't know what to do with my life. There are just too many things to do and too little time to do all the things I want to do. For instance, I want to go back to school...

    Quantum mechanics (QM – also known

    I Have Had Trouble With Physics

    I respect it a lot, and am good at math, but can't seem to penetrate physics to an intuitive level. i've always respected those who can deal with such abstraction, yet about reality. philosophy is a close cousin, also blows my mind.
