Hi Dick,

You said "I am very sorry but I believe you are out of your depth with regard to the subject you bring up."

You're right about that, my background is actually biology not physics although I've been dabbling in physics and astronomy since I was a kid.

I understand your point about explanations (myths) though. For example, there may be multiple explanations (myths) for what is the significance of Bell's Inequality Theorem being violated, ie. our system of logic is invalid, or the separation between observer and subject is an iillusion, or there is a "superluminal glue" between everything, etc. A leap of faith is required to accept any of these as true statements.

In defense of our modern day physics myths though, I don't think that it's such a bad thing that physicists use their imaginations to fill in the "blank spaces" so to speak, as long as the explanation is not passed off as a statement of truth but as a statement of what could be true.

Your paper sounds interesting. Let us know when it's published or has it been published already?
