Imagine a father or mother hugging their child in the belief that it is an aggregate of “quantum stuff”! I mean, it is really horrible even to conceive of this possibility that the scientists might be true. It is worse than our most terrible nightmare; it is worse than anything science fiction could have dreamed up. So I’m amazed how our civilization can go on with this official public veneration of science—or of the scientist, if you will—as the “new oracle” which tells us what kind of a universe we find ourselves in.
The Philos-Sophia Initiative’s feature documentary chronicling the life and work of Dr. Smith, The End of Quantum Reality, is now available.
