Alex,

As a matter of fact I do have a background in physics and math. I'm an electronic engineer! I learned more math and physics in university than I ever had a use for. I learned calculus, Fourier transforms, Maxwell's equations, all that Language Removed. The only use I ever had for that stuff was to get good grades in exams. I forgot a lot and I have no interest whatsoever in remembering it, as it never helped me in any way. Then again, I still remember a lot.

Let me comment on your post:

>> You can trust whoever you like more, or you can come up with your own explanation, or you can come up with gods or Santas to explain the phenomena (say, uncertanty principle). > Distance from the truth is just inversely proportional to your knowledge of the subject. Because this subject (UP) is mathematical, then the more math you master, the better. > And this is exactly why we have so many people around who due to lack of good education needs various gods (Allahs, Buddas, etc) to explain where events and phenomena come from. > So, frankly, I do not know what should you do if you do not have math/physics background/knowledge nor a time to learn. > You are just lost then. The only good news is that you are not alone
