Anyone ever notice that when you are sitting at home, or at a bus stop, coffee shop, etc, time seems to drag on. You look at the clock/watch and you say to yourself "Where is my frackin' bus/freind/coffee?". Yet in the reverse of that situation, say were headed to work and you woke up late so you are really pushing it on time, which seems to be flying out the window faster than your stream of curses? That is what is known as Space-Time. The Quantum realm is all about what happens behind the scenes of these scenarios. Basically to attempt to understand Quantum physics in general you have to accept that any particle is not only matter but a wave as well. Each particle vibrates at a certian rate which can be influenced by it's surroundings such as "Black body Radiation" http://galileo.phys.virginia.edu/classes/252/black_body_radiation.html
This all seems great but what does it mean? It means that nothing is impossible for anyone. Motivation and encouragement are all that is required.

@Alistair - All that worries me now is that we are not pursuing all inclusive progress. Yes there are scientists, innovators and others doing their stuff and there are more of them today. But with all this progress there is also a widening gap between those who learn, think and do and average citizens. I am talking about the least common denominator.

I think it was Eleanor Roosevelt that great minds tend to discuss ideas, average minds events, and weak minds people, or something like that? but why the belief there is a decline over time? Britain is talking about trying to attain 40% population with degrees. Education very rarely seems to devolve anywhere. China during communism is about the only serious example I am aware of and they seem to have kicked that bad habit.

@alistair- education isn't as important as the ability and drive to apply that knowledge. Nothing is more dangerous thanks an educated fool because now they know how to be a fool in an educated manner. I have no formal education outside of a high school diploma and an emt-b certificate and I work with people who have higher ed, yet I grasp concepts such as QM much more fluidly and readily than they do. It's a matter of wanting to understand v wanting to further your career in my eyes.

@Praveen- I fear you're right, and it's a multi-faceted problem that I intend to focus on in both Philosophy for Life and Colors of Governance. I'm not sure using language like 'amateurs doing higher thinking' is very conducive to the issue as a whole. It perpetuates a cultural meme that implies only professionals can be good at contemplating and enumerating the philosophical issues facing civilization, cultures must promote philosopher citizenry, inversely to Plato's republic, to succeed.

This Documentary changed my life. The whole idea is that the world is open for the taking, and that the Observer decides when and where to take it. It has an aspect of Self-Responsibility, which can often be lost in the flow. It's up to us to make our lives better, we alone must choose our course, and the more people who realize it and act on it, the better off we will be. I fundamentally disagree with Organized Religion, it promotes a sheep mentality and that some "God" will make sure you are taken care of. Science in general has taught me that if something is too good to be true it probably is not. This is where I started. I'm still figuring it out, but I feel like I'm headed in the right direction.

It's truly empowering to understand that you have complete control over your reality simply by the way you choose to feel or see a certain situation or chain of situations.

Mr. Smolin Makes exceptional points in this talk that really fall in line with the uneasiness I have felt about certain aspects of Physics, especially with Time. Time being a Human conception, it changes, each second is almost imperceptibly longer than the second before, yet each represents the thin line between past, present, and future.

By my own comprehension, Time only has as much influence on our reality as we allow it to, the more you focus on it, the slower it will go, unless of course you are running late which is a whole other can of worms.

The Idea of the laws of physics that "Naturalism 1" would consider to be unchanging being quite the opposite, flexible, adaptable, seems to fit for some reason. Perhaps its because if the Mathematical reality is never changing than how does Evolution progress? Even Fractal Geometric patterns, something I loosely comprehend as a mathematical way of expressing the potential possibilities of change in an environment, shows us that no matter how many times you isolate a space you create another infinite canvas for more isolation's, which shows change over the progression of Time.

Interesting propositions in all. I feel that Humanity faces a large challenge in the coming Century, one that we are only scratching the surface of. So how do we move forward?
