    Sentient rocks rock! But Boody is so innocently skipping stones! In quantum fieri potest!

    The problem is that the Strong Draconic Principle overrules the Weak Lithotic Principle.

    The strength of the Anthropic Principle is still undetermined.

    And I thought “Spot the Frog” had an excess of empathy.

    I was going to argue with that rock, but I decided to skip it.

    Boody doing some scooning with stones. A kinetic litho-symphony on a liquid medium. How delightful!

    Apropos to this comic strip, if quantum mechanics were theistic rather than humanistic in its referents, it would make perfect sense.

    As it is, paradoxes arise if one takes a man-centered POV on the subject. I can never remember the limerick that expressed one such paradox, alas, but I can remember clearly somebody’s answer to it (the paradox involving whether an object exists if no human is watching it):

    Dear Sir, Your astonishment’s odd;
    I am always about in the Quad;
    And that’s why this tree
    Will continue to be,
    Since observed by Yours Faithfully, GOD!

    Cool that they can stil communicate. Distance doesn’t seem to be very limiting to rock talk.

    Well since God(s) are imaginary they can have quantity x and violate physics any time it wants too as dreams do. Keep that imagination running! Just don’t confuse it with reality.

    @Johanan Rakkav

    The original was:

    There was a young man who said “God,
    must find it exceedingly odd
    when he finds that the tree
    continues to be
    when no one’s about in the Quad”.

    See http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/berkeley/ for a more complete discussion.

    Your raising the question of the relevance of Berkeley’s philosophy to an understanding of today’s strip makes me wonder if one of the rocks served as the instrument of Dr. Johnson’s famous ‘refutation’ of that philosophy ;-)

    There is, of course, the possibility that God is imaginary in the sense that the square root of minus one is imaginary.

    The question is can the Universe (s) exist without either?
