On Truth & Reality

Found an interesting website... On Truth & Reality at http://www.spaceandmotion.com/


Introduction to the Site (an excerpt):


"This website is about truth and reality - about how you and everything around you exist in space. We have an extensive collection of pages on many of the greatest minds from history, with thousands of brilliant quotes that are both inspiring and profoundly important. More than this though, we provide a simple solution to many of the problems of knowledge that have caused humanity so much conflict and confusion.


And yes, we do realise that people are skeptical of websites on truth and reality. But the solution is obvious once known - it just takes our minds a while to adjust to new ways of thinking. The error? For the past 350 years (since Newton) we have tried to describe an interconnected reality (which has been known for thousands of years) with many discrete and separate 'particles'. Thus you have to add forces or fields to the particles to connect them together in space and time. This is merely a mathematical solution and it does not explain how discrete matter particles create continuous fields that act on other particles in the space around them. Further, both quantum physics (particle-wave duality, non-locality, uncertainty) and Einstein's general relativity (matter-energy curves space-time) contradict the concept of discrete and separate 'particles'."



And those whose hearts are fixed on Reality itself deserve the title of Philosophers.

(Plato, Republic, 380BC)

Denying realism amounts to megalomania

(the most widespread occupational disease of the professional philosopher).

(Karl Popper, 1975)

I kind of like the way all those pixels merge when playing video games at 1080p.
