    So you wouldn’t mind if I bonked you upside the head with this unsolid rock?

    Lucretius: atoms in the void.
    Today’s physicist: strings in the void.

    Nah. Nothing actually touched. Just the electric fields of charged particles getting close enough to repel each other…

    So if I understand this, he’s just mathematically proven that everything we see is an illusion like the Taoists have said for over a thousand years?

    We see what we are adapted to see. Only some outliers see less or more and those that see more don’t fit in very well.

    Reflected energies yes but then there is the processing from the optic nerve to the brain’s optic areas. And yes, there is a minor delay.

    Physics and philosophy sometimes collide in unfortunate ways. If you go with the assumption; “looks solid=is solid” you can avoid 28 stitches in your forehead. Trust me.

    I’m impressed too that you went to the trouble of finding an equation you can put on that board. Very good, I like that attention to detail.

    How do you know he went to any trouble finding the equation? Maybe he’s just extremely intelligent to start off with. ;:^)
