I don't mean to be a defender of the status quo, but I don't see any support for assuming the validity or universality of this analogy (which "anonymous" posed")comparing:
1) the behavior of electron streams in a double slit experiment to
2) the complex interactions of brain, body, and external world involving our abstract and physical experiences

What is mean by "meaningless," and "in all directions?" I suspect 'nothing.'

I like this kind of thinking. Let us remember that sometimes the right answer is not what we thought it should be.

Thanks, Anonymous, for playing.
