"..how many people really want to see the true face of reality and unravel everything you thought you knew, literally, including your very being?
At the very end, that is the exact goal of the 'mystical path'.
That's why everyone talks about wanting to achieve some
'super state', but what they always want, is to have their
cake and to eat it too. And of course that doesn't get you
Now on the subject of quantum mechanics. It's far too easy
to invoke quantum mechanics as a form of 'quantum mysticism'.
Now I have nothing against mysticism, so long as one uses the
practice as a tool, and with wisdom.
You do bring up an interesting topic of course.. G/J !
I can't speak for people, but I think it's fair to say, that
most people consider that there are two kinds of UFO's
1. Mis-identified military aircraft, or possibly reverse
engineered alien tech (I'm not stating my opinion
2. Some sort of 'spiritual or transdimensional type
of phenomenon. (I'm not really interested in worrying
about the distinction here, if any).
Your quantum interpretation would definitely fall more
towards type 2.
Of course the problem with quantum phenomenon on
large scales is decoherence. For any type of quantum
type drive, there would have to be something like an
'infinite improbability shield' like in hitchhikers guide.
(which is a book of humor).
By the way.. a similar metaphor to your post was the
1956 movie "Forbidden Planet" with a 20-year old
Leslie Nielson. Wow! for the time, I'd have to give
the movie a 10 out of 10. In that movie, the aliens
created a powerful machine which created things
out of pure thought. In that movie, things didn't
turn out so well... would YOU want to be hooked
to an all-power machine which could make the
random impulses of your mind come true?
So while I enjoy your theory, I wonder why
(presumably) our future selves, or 'true'
selves (out of the matrix or whatever metaphor
you are using) have nothing better to create,
than 'teaser' UFO's and random cattle mutilations
Couldn't they at least bring back Elvis or something
If WE are causing all this craziness (and I'm not saying
that we are not (I have my own private observations),
then 'we' don't have much of an imagination! Or this
is the UFO and damned to evil channel on galactic
television channel br-549 !
Keep up the good thinking!
