"Congratulations on the best summary of how things are, at large, that I've yet seen. And you did it without resorting to math yet, I believe I understood every word and concept. It's the kind of overview summary piece I expected of Einstein & others but never saw. You have an amazing ability to be succinct, very clear and to the point." --- Craig-Sherwood Pease

learned from his book: Standing Q waves in matter incorporate
new information in a "continuous, time dependent, 'self'
organizing process" and flow inward from a sphere to where
they collapse; A particle "ordinates" the space around it in that
it creates fields and is determined by fields that are in this
space/time. (He assumes as most scientists that space/time is physical reality.
I do not.)
However as a physicist trained person, he does not mention how aggregates of
particles strictly adhere to probability laws or even the
adherence of one particle to these laws over time. We are
aggregates of particles. He thinks the "self consciousness" in
one particle created the universe. He fails, as most physicalists
fail, to make any sense out of God or out of entanglement. He
sees humans as "the mind of the universe" Thus to me, he
views humans as better than we really are. Physicist
philosophers tend to be far too optimistic about humans. They
tend to see some type of "order" in what determines the
universe as determining "good" as a destiny in our human
future. I view this order as neutral. These physicists' views are
too deterministic to be applied to humans. W. Dana Shea
