Flat Earth Physicists

I recently watched a cool movie (Rocketman:  Mad Mike’s Mission to Prove the Flat Earth).  The documentary is about this dare devil guy, who built his own rocket from salvaged materials, lit it off with him strapped in, and soared up and up……..so he could prove that the Earth is flat.  Well, he is either an ingenious and brave man……..or just plain missing some nuts and bolts upstairs.  Probably both.  The rocket fire, he did soar, it did work, he landed hard, but I ended the film shaking my head and not sure whether he found out what he needed for his proof.

Later I watched a “debate” between a Buddhist teacher and a physicist.  The physicist, one of the more brilliant and respected minds of his profession, has become trapped in his research that has led him to believe that the quantum theories and cosmological stuff he works with is “all there is.”  To him, when we die, we die….the end. El Fin.

But the Buddhist teacher reminded him that we humans have not really made any attempt to research and explore the human consciousness like we have the physical world.  Of course there are in fact quite a few physicists who are now (actually for decades) at least thinking about our human consciousness and if (there is) a universal consciousness, and how these relate and how they relate to the physical world and universe that we humans apprehend.

But this particular physicist just reminded me that the majority of humankind are still “flat Earthers,” believing that we individually exist apart from all that we observe.

More and more I respect thinkers like Magellan.


Look to What You DON’T Know.

Will Rogers, one of yesteryear’s revered comedic and philosophical figures, once said this:



Yes, I know Halloween is a few days away, but allow me to warp time for now.  I continue to puzzle at the daily diversity of opinions and viewpoints about the same subjects in politics, and all other human endeavors and communications.  How can two people or 19 look at the same “thing” and see “it” so differently?  Or why does my lady friend always see things so differently from me?  Sure, we can attribute that to any number of variables, summed up with each person being unique in the universe.  But my theory, from my universe, is that often actually each of our consciousness resides predominately in its universe, literally, but with also shifting across or jumping into other universes without any time period being involved, purely instantaneously.

Theoretical physicists, at least many, subscribe to the multiverse / parallel universes view, as their experiments and math indicate that.  I subscribe to the position that our human consciousness belongs to a universal consciousness, and following that logic, if there are multiple physical universes, then there should be multiple universal consciousness.  Of course if one wishes to posit that “the universal consciousness” is “God” then either there must be a God for each universe, or all the universes collapse back into one God-state.  Personally I am not concerned about what God is or Gods, or where “IT” is.

My point here is that I believe the explanation for why we each see the world and each “thing” in the world differently, although their is a consensus of reality, is that most of us are in different parallel or entangled universes, each having a different quantum state for any quantum scenario.

This would explain, among everything else, why Republicans can look at Trump’s follies and respond in their way, while Democrats have an entirely different view.

So while you are sipping your latte today, you might want to browse these links, which “sort of” relate to my hypothesis:
