I feel this is becoming a philosophical thread.
It's true that "discussion" (arguments) ultimateley fail. I have been changed in my understanding and thinking a few times, but how many 'too
proud' individuals can say that? Not many is my guess.
Alot of people in the west, are born with a fkin silver spoon in their mouth, because 'you' are nutured like a saint. It's like the blind. blinding
the already blind.
I think that the problem to understanding lies within our ego.
Quantum mechanics/physics are both inside and outside the realms of current science. It's because, to understand, (observer effecting the observed)
we have to shatter our preconcieved ideas, about what is right/wrong, theory/reality etc... Everything.
We have to make that jump, to just 'be', without being constrained. I don't think that it will happen though. I think that we have all evolved to
self destruct. Although I've been enlightened on ideas myself, humans are far too 'proud' imo. I've noticed it alot on ATS.
