βš› Not that empty . . .

Having gone through electronics technical school in 1968 my knowledge of atomic theory is a bit outdated. Thought this was interesting in catching me up to date in my own exploration of emptiness.

Great article!

Love this line:

" If atoms and molecules remained a collection of point-like particles, they would be mostly empty space. But at their size scale, they must be described by quantum theory. And this theory predicts that the wave-like picture predominates until a measurement disturbs it. Instead of localised bullets in empty space, matter delocalises into continuous quantum clouds."

How was your retreat?

Listened to close to half so far. The format of their web page is not friendly for text to speech so it is taking a little longer for me to get through it than normal.

Thought you would enjoy this article I recently saw:

Andrew had this to say about forms of cognition in his most recent video, I thought is was really brilliant:

Proof of hidden meaning cognition:

β€œif you cant access the truth of a particular teaching or doctrine, you assess the character of the person who seems to profess that truth.”

We do this all the time:
example: β€œive never seen a molecule, a quark, a black hole”, but I trust the experts who have.
