    yeah, you know the best way to get someone thinking about that is to ask them how they know that everything around them really exists, and that they're not the only person in the world imagining everything else! :crazyeyes

    i find it fascinating that in india a few thousand years ago ...the mystics there stated that all was vibrating ...nothing was solid.
    a few thousand years later science catches up and discovers that everything is ...vibrating and there is nothing solid.

    your desk has more empty space than solid bits ...your body ...everything that exists has more space than matter but ...we live this illusion that all is solid and still.

    how the hell did these guys thousands of years ago figure this out?

    drugs i reckon.
    why?
    cos drugs helped them escape the illusion and discover reality.

    Surely it causes no harm to get in touch with yourself? Besides, not all of his posts are opinion.

    Are you talking about the string theory?

    It seems to me to be the only good theory for what's consumes empty space.

    no ya plank!
    atoms.
    the fact that it's all balls ...spinnimng round and round.

    there is more space in a brick than there is material.
    evrything that exists is mostly empty space but appears solid to us ...now thats one hell of an illusion.
    figured out thousands of years ago by thin men with beards.

    for the brightest lad on his street you have to wonder sometimes.
