Richard,

>>>"I apologize for seizing on one point without digesting the whole list of propositions."

Do not apologize. The whole exercise was meant to bolster my position as an agnostic, and I think you helped expand on this with your examples of personal biases (Dick, etc).

>>>"the point is that no physics theory tells what reality is"

I don't think anyone, or anything we have at our disposal, can fairly resolve its own tale of "reality" (i.e., without that leap of faith). I walk away from these considerations of reality with a stronger sense of my own Agnosticism. In fact, in these posts to Harv I depict Agnosticism as a sort of antithesis to Ontology.

>>>"I cannot accept this proposition."

I used QM's "fuzziness" to highlight how our observations confound our intuition.
