Hi Alan,

You know, I used to like reading your posts a lot before you got into this nursery-rhyme physics thing. When it comes to things that really matter, things like life, death, love, freedom, happiness, God, I think science is ridiculous nonsense. So you can imagine my disappointment with you, when you write something like this:

" In the natural state; you and the universe are one; when you move it moves; everything is NOW; NEW; no jail, no matrix "

... which is absolutely profound and meaningful, and then at the same time talk about meaningless stuff like patterns, laws, conservation, consistency?

Don't you get it yourself? You have discovered something amazing: you have discovered that the universe is personal. And you are perfectly justifying in trusting your discovery because, after all, people of all ages and places knew it already, even if they had trouble understanding it.

So, and this is only a humble suggestion, why don't you just drop this physics nonsense for good? I mean, I am a person and I don't like when people, like psychologists, talk about myself in impersonal terms. If you look at me and see patterns rather than personality, laws of behaviour rather than free choices, mechanics rather than expressions, a body rather than a soul, then you are missing the real me. Likewise for the universe, I don't think It likes being talked about in such cold, impersonal terms, as if it were a soulless machine.

I guess a better way to put it, if you are going to talk about God, make sure you do it most respectfully.

Hope you'll get my point.
