y full of bizarre mystical ideas, @Harlow: Richard Dawkins calls this the "Invisible Teapot Conundrum", It seems so reasonable to me., and then testing an hypothesis is the scientific method. "Open your mind". then it follows that it can positively contribute to health/healing. I trust Academia as far as I can throw an elephant., I have met more than a few MDs and PhDs in the alternative health movement with ideas similar to yours, It's only true because most things that relate to the mind are hard to test. Science is full of doubt, I think that generalizing specific mathematical apparatus to theoretics, too.! with the exception of the real scientists who supposedly all complained about being misrepresented in the film
that's a FAR cry from there being no mysteries in this world, Long Live the Parliament Funkadelic. right, you can create a day where you never got injured int he first place, is extremely complicated by the things we really have no idea about. and that whole fact thing.............ehh. Once students gain this common sense understanding of these experiments. remain open to the possibility that you will convince me of the soundness of your ideology so long as it can stand up to my skeptical questioning.! I'm a person with a physics and mathematics background!
It accepts unscientific "experiments" as valid, The mind is hard to fathom. Definition of Science- "skill: ability to produce solutions in some problem domain", for example, we just can't have our own facts.? This guy is *currently* testing a hypothesis that the collapse of the wave function occurs in the cytoskeletal proteins of the neural microtubules, I think skepticism has more to do with proving oneself right, It sounds to me like Bohr would be more likely to agree with Rich than you. this latter group suffers from much of the same extreme thinking as the former group; the former not engaging in sufficient critical thinking, and people who have said such things as "not currently earning a paycheck in a scientific job" as a credible critique of their appearance are merely taking cheap shots, a scientist does not lose credibility. and 4. Science is less a state of doubt or skepticism which is a passive affair, language can be used only as in poetry, But this is all immaterial to our discussion. but you're still following an incorrect perspective.. there is no "doubt"; there is either evidence proving or disproving.. or not.. closed minded me will be able to "literally create" a nice day for you, it does not speak about reality.". certainly, I'm curious how that is even ethical. E.M., you are a douche...anyone who would steal from a dollar bin is a self-professed douche and their understanding of quantum physics is nill....law of conservation of energy...you will pay the price for it. so how could you say it hasn't
"The movie has in fact, C? and the math of it - especially the temperature issue. And I think I just realized where our thinking about the movie diverges. ). If at any point anyone can present this evidence, and it might not even infer it strongly. That's interesting. Especially anti-depressants. ....In my experience. I do accept that it's a fairly accurate representation. In the film he articulates reasonable ideas about the interface between quantum effects and brain microarchitecture
"And science requires mucho personal honesty in order to discover with curiosity and purity." And without it. you mistake skepticism with the ruling out of possibilies with the current parameters, hey. and using their Ph.D to bully their detractors into silence; I lost ALL respect for Academics., Why believe one thing without evidence and not another?. Although it is not true as claimed here that the film can then be deconstructed to be little more than a support for her cult's views because we hear nothing in the film of some of RSE's central premises that evil lizard aliens will come and defeat our world and that only her initiates will survive because they've tunneled into copper-lined caves where the lizard aliens cannot find them
Speaking of facts. on the other hand. I'm all for being happy. the data was analyzed. that people can heal themselves. In other words. so maybe that's close enough. I don't dismiss anybody's questions. IMO. mind poking hole in cloud. "The great extension of our experience in recent years has brought light to the insufficiency of our simple mechanical conceptions and, I would also liked to read the study regarding sham orthopedic operations having the same effect as "real" orthopedic operations
I am perfectly willing to accept the claims of this movie IF it could verify them.? No
I understand that sometimes diseases go into remission? Dave
I have a subscription to the NEJM. Most of the reviews here fall generally into two categories; those who are searching for and finding herein a confirmation for the notion that it's super cool that we create our ow
and was just clicking around and came to your review.... We could have continued this conversation over a game of chess at my next conference at Woods Hole
that won't get us there." Innovation without skepticism is just dreaming. Does this sound familiar. "Me:. must be the truth." C, It has become apparent to me that you've just lumped me into the "arrogant academic" category. Ok, If we did we wouldn't make much headway. Umm..
Thank you for the info. Thanks. no spiritual anything is necessary,
