    The title kinda says it all. Some guy believes he has found a large connection between Quantum Physics and the human brain. I think it is fascinating.

    Now an article discussing the validity of "Athene:"
    http://www.benzinga.com/press-releases/11/01/p802566/biggest-troll-on-the-internet-becomes-modern-day-einstein

    I don't want to have to post the entire article here because, well, there's a link.
    However, one of my friends did actually meet Athene back when he played WoW. He believes this guy is tremendously smart and could have something legitimate. Either way determining the validity of the video's underpinnings is beyond me. It just interests me tremendously.

    I also thought it might interests other people as well.

    "The delusion of the internal self vs that of the external world"... though I have no scientific way of verifying all the information in this video.. most of the spiritual philosophies I follow say the same... its the basis of the Taoist Tao (way) and Yin and Yang, which are not polar opposites in reality, but only in our judgement of things,... also, the delusional character of the split is the basis of the buddhist and hindu philisophy of "nirvana", "self-realisation" aka "oneness with all that is"... the idea returns in Jewish Kabalism, Christian agnosticism and Islamic Sufism, where the Self and Infinite God are equated as One... hence the often-cited "I am god" by mystics and Jesus, and their insistence of using "non-judgement"... all of these philosophies hark back on the human capability to suspend all judgement and experience the totality of existence without the barriers of the self as a separate entity...

    But on the other hand, as my right brain would challenge me... the above may simply be my left brain fitting in this new knowledge with what I knew before .... Considering that i am not an entity (thats another Asian philosophy: I am nothing and everything simultaneously) but that I am always changing and I my self is an illusion, that means this entire story I just concocted up there was just me continuing to defend me from oblivion.... interesting eh? ^_^
