Pilot-wave theory implications on the Big Questions
This draft-state article explores the implications of pilot-wave theory (see) on the "big questions" in life, assuming that pilot-wave theory is indeed adequate and that the universe is deterministic on a physical level. Pilot-wave theory is simply chaos theory taking to the particle level: the deterministic laws of nature are not out of force, but […]
It all. Nothing short of it all.
In your twenties, you were a visionary. You wanted to learn it all, and fix it all. All the world. Ever realized that you cannot do everything that is meaningful in your life? When you dedicate your life to help people with HIV, you can't go find a cure for HIV. Or find the quantum […]

This desire for emotions is behind much […]

With respect to our life in this world this would only be a theoretical concept, as condemnation happens after this life. Christian people would just know that people are infinitely bad, which […]
Ramblings on pneumo-mechanics
These are some philosophical, speculative ramblings about how the human spirit works and how the Holy Spirit interacts with it.
