But I dropped in at just the right time. This is one of my favorite subjects; this and a lot of the stuff Harv talks about.
Trying to comprehend quantum mechanics is like trying to grab both your feet and pick yourself up. Being that we are part of the system, we cannot get any other perspective than an "insider" point of view. I've read a couple of Dr. Dick's posts and a coupl'a good books on the philosophy behind the movie, "The Matrix", and have come to the conclusion that science (specifically the physical sciences) is good for technological advancement, but is gradually becoming apparent that applying any interpretive meaning to the deeper issues is impossible.
If you read a good book on solipsism, how could anybody ever again convince you that you're not the only one who exists, completely alone in a vast cosmos created solely for your own experience.
And if you set your brain to work trying to comprehensively interpret quantum physics, how could you ever reach a conclusion that isn't itself derived from a network of quantum particles (i.e. the brain).
Perhaps if death separates you from the universe, then you're no longer trying to "pick yourself up using yourself" at which point the "truth" becomes crystal clear. But then again this implies that you simply elevate to a higher plane of understanding which is in itself subject to the "new rules" of whatever new universe or state of being you go to. Then it starts all over again the moment you question the nature of your new state. I guess you can never escape your own mind and therefor will always be trying to use the mind to understand itself (pick yourself up).
