Re: questions on review process, thoroughness, etc.
The only parts of QM we ignore are those bastardized convolutions that lead to such things as cosmic consciousness, power crystals and a universal cosmic intelligence.

I think you meant universal comic intelligence.

What I find mindblowing is the fact that some pond scum has evolved to the point where we can dare to contemplate anything about this universe at all.

I hate the term "pond scum" because it is intended to be derogatory, kind of like turd in a punchbowl. So-called pond scum is usually mats of algae that float because of trapped oxygen bubbles buoying it up.

As a kid, when I put a small portion of pond scum under my microscope I found that it was literally crawling with life, literally thousands of organisms in a single drop.

I know you and most people don't mean it in the demeaning way, but I sure wish we had a better description for what is actually an endlessly fascinating example of teaming life.

The observer effect? Really?

That's right, every time I go to sleep, you and the rest of the Universe disappear...

Re: No evidence of aliens visiting earth
My understanding is the the first contact will involve an autopsy because the governmental consensus is we have to know how to kill them....

And the whackaloon sensor just pegged. So who informed you of this? Men in black suits?
