Cool podcast, although, kind of tactless in my opinion to be soliciting money up front, but good stuff after that.

Likely a good listen, but, odds are it's like listening to my girlfriend talk physics Smile

Which is ok, as my girlfriend is particularly well educated.

From the text:
Coherence: Perhaps the concept of “nothingness” is incoherent, and the possibility of reality not existing was never actually a viable option.
I personally believe that to think that there is a nothingness is absurd. We are in a reality that most of us (Angel, are you there) accept and to deny our combined reality is foolish.

I say combined reality as my reality is different from yours as your reality is different from those next to you. When your reality intersects with my reality then we have a combined reality, if only for that moment of coherence.

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.
