“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.” – Max Planck, Nobel Prize winning originator of quantum theory, as quoted in The Observer (25 January 1931)

These discussions always devolve into new age nonsense circle jerks, like alcoholics slurring their bs around the campfire after everyone else goes to bed.
I have a hypo. In year 2300, humans have finally completed a train which has tracks along the equator and circles the entire Earth. It runs about 99% the speed of light, and just keeps going around the Earth and around again, about 7 times per second. The government has mandated several safety features be on board, one of which is a hard land line telephone system. Essentially the telephone lines run parallel to the train tracks all the way around the Earth, and as the train speeds around it never loses contact with these telephone wires, allowing for passengers on board the train to make outbound calls for the continuous duration of their trip. On February 23, 2300, 20 wealthy passengers board the train for its maiden trip. All is well. After several hours, passenger Jimbo, after innocently flirting with the stranger seated near him, decides to call his wife, who could not travel and is instead at that moment sitting in a chair in a restaurant on land formally known as the great state of Ohio. The couple begins the conversation, as they have since they first met back in college, with a duet of a Nickleback song. Jimbo simply calls his wife, she answers by saying "hello", Jimbo the replies "hello", and then the two sing Nickelback in harmony for the next 2 minutes. As it stands, the National Security Agency directly monitors every communication, part national security part jobs program. As agent Hugo, who sits in a cubicle in Old York, listens to the conversation between Jimbo and his wife, Nola, what does he hear?
doesn't mean trigonometry isn't an actual thing that can be understood. It just means you have to work on the idea and try to understand it through study.
