Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think we should not engage in a war by proxy between your friend and my PhD advisor, which is what this would devolve into.

Though it would never be a war with you anyway.  Preconceived ideas are always the hardest to give up.  But i bet we could have a very interesting evening together.

The real point was not about Sarfatti, but about the physical roots of consciousness, and the possible effect of the now common "paradigm shift" in human thinking.  And how that shift would affect every aspect of civilization.

Now, what is that meant to mean?

Like imprinting, Migeru's understanding of the reality swirling around the wave function of Sarfatti's life is informed by the PhD advisor's view, just as mine is informed by hanging out with the entire crew of psychotic boddhisatvas.

People in general do not change views easily, as there's always some extra attachment.  "No, we have to take Little Round Top, said Lt. General Pickett."  or perhaps, "No, Pope, the sun does not move around the earth."
