This thread is getting me excited. I'm changing my avatar to Satyendra Nath Bose.

The pilot wave theory seems so be pretty trendy lately. Cool stuff.

On a philosophical note, I read this in The Pleasure of Finding Things Out earlier today:

In the impetuous youth of humanity, we can make grave errors that can stunt our growth for a long time. This we will do if we say we have the answers now, so young and ignorant; if we suppress all discussion, all criticism, saying, ‘This is it, boys, man is saved!’ and thus doom man for a long time to the chains of authority, confined to the limits of our present imagination. It has been done so many times before.

It is our responsibility as scientists, knowing the great progress and great value of a satisfactory philosophy of ignorance, the great progress that is the fruit of freedom of thought, to proclaim the value of this freedom, to teach how doubt is not to be feared but welcomed and discussed, and to demand this freedom as our duty to all coming generations.

I like that quote. Escaping our seemingly inevitable extinction should be the primary goal of our existence.

Those last 2 videos ended up leading me to this:



Interesting talk, if you have the time.

Mankind is obsessed with goals. Always preparing for life, instead of just living it. A victim of it's own intellect. Death ain't a problem and needs no solution.

Thats contradictory to the existence of all living things, not just humans. Also extinction and death are not the same. Also, welcome back.
