Geek Attack!
.
EXTREME WEIRD CRAP! 
.
Science Vs Mysticism from a Philosophical viewpoint. 
.
.
.
The following text is NOT what I personally believe (At all! Even a bit!) but rather 'playing with thoughts', the same way you might ideally fidget with a piece of string.
.
If you like, you can categorise the following train of thought as,
“Stupid things that pass through your mind when you are drunk.” 
.
PS!
DO NOT HAVE NIGHTMARES!

.
“If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it,
Will it still make a sound?”

.
Once upon a time, I used to think,
.
This is a very stupid question!
.
The sound is made by variations in any atmosphere.
A rock falling on to the ground on a totally lifeless planet in deep space still makes a sound.
.
The physical laws of science don’t give a flying crap if anything can consciously hear it or not!
.
Stupid Question!
.
Case Closed!
.
THEN...
.
One night I decided to drink a load of beers while watching TV
.
There is a TV show called QI made by BBC 1,
I was a repeat of it on a channel called DAVE.
One of the guests was Dr Brain Cox,
.
.
COMMON SENSE ALERT! 
The following is a transcript; so obviously, the rules of grammar are not applied! 
Because it is a transcript from a naturally occurring live conversation. 
So you lot in the grammar police can just sit down and shut the hell up for a moment! 
.
<Start>
.
Dr Brian Cox :
.
According to Einstein’s theory of space-time which is our best theory of space-time,
.
There is no such thing as a present moment which spans the universe or indeed even the earth,
Or in fact, two people moving relative to each other,
.
Stephan Fry:
.
It is absurd to think of an event that might be happening “Now” in the Galaxy and me doing this! <Stephan Fry moves a pen> has been simultaneous,
That has no meaning, cosmically, does it!
.
Dr Brian Cox:
.
You can swap the order of them around as long as they are not causally connected.
I mean, we do not know how time works on a very fundamental level.
If I throw a glass over there and it smashes on the ground,
Then obviously I caused it to smash by throwing it.
You cannot have the smash before I throw it.
However, if you look.... Let's say Sun and the Earth,
.
And the sun is eight light minutes away,
.
So the sun explodes now, then we will not know for eight minutes.
.
So for eight minutes anything that I do here,
I talk, and I talk and four minutes later I am still talking,
.
So you can swap the order of those things around until the point when they causally connect.
.
So in that case until the explosion destroys the earth.
.
<End>
.
QI Series 1 Episode 7 “Incomprehensible“
.
Original airing Friday the 21st Oct 2011 BBC2,
.
And I sat there full of beer and thought,
“Hang on that cannot be right?!”
.
Because we all know how much more arrogant douche bags like me get after they have a few beers in us!
.
Assuming by Causal effect (him being a physicist talking about physics) he is limiting the argument to physical causal effects then physics must be wrong!
.
Because that would mean that there can never be any causal effect between a long-dead star and anyone here on earth.
.
But there is!
.
That long-dead star still makes physical things and effects stuff happening to us here!
And it makes real physical changes in all our lives without any physical causality!
And I can prove it! (ish)
.
I present just four possible pieces of evidence for you all to consider.
.
Exhibit A
The Painting “Starry Night” by Van Gough
Which then lead to the Hit Song “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)” by Don McLean © Universal Music Publishing Group.
.
.
Exhibit B
The child's song “Twinkle Twinkle little star”
.
.
Exhibit C
Horoscopes
.
Exhibit D
Dr Brian Cox himself and his entire scientific career!
.
Because while there cannot be any direct physical causality from the long-dead star, we are most definitely affected and inspired by our observation of it!
.
And those observations and inspirations make us create physical things such as art.
.
And that art makes a vast amount of money (whose value is also a commonly held delusion) which is used to hire people, feed them and allow them to pay taxes.
.
And those taxes can be spent by governments to produce weapons that kill people.
.
And just as any other chaos butterfly effect, goes on and on!
.
All from something that can NOT have any physical Causality with us!
.
Yes this whole argument seems a little pedantic,
.
Ok, I hold my hand up and admit it!
.
It is very pedantic and douchy of me!
.
And you could argue that,
‘Photons of visible light from that long-dead star still travel and hit the eyes of us observers to make us feel so inspired!’
.
Like the thrown glass (Photon of visible light) that smashes into the floor (our eye).
.
The Observation cannot come before the existence of that long-dead star, throws out its light out into the dark.
.
Sure the amount of physical mass of those photons Vs the potential weight of the crap storm of physical effects that chain react here seems a little disproportionate!
.
But hey “Such is life”
.
But then it got me thinking about the nature of our ability to observe and the potential mystical non-science connections.
.
Physics:
.
If you have a single photon 
(maybe it is from our long-dead star). 
.
And you direct or aim it in a plain,
To try to get it to travel through a small slit,
Out the other side,
Travel a short way,
Then through another slit,
To hit a target on the other side.
.
According to physics,
If either slit is observed it will not make it through both slits, (it will miss its target)
.
BUT 
.
If Neither sit is observed,
(Say the physicist doing the experiment needs the toilet, has a tea break or simply turns his back.)
Then the Photon will make it through and hit its target.
.
However
If the Photon of visible light is observed after it has been shot in the correct direction, but BEFORE it hits the target.
.
(The physicist suddenly pops his head round to corner!)
.
It will NOT have gone through both slits!
(Even though that is the only possible path it could have taken to successfully hit the target!)
.
And this has been PROVEN!
(If I am wrong about this someone please tell me in the comments below)
.
So a physical effect of a photon is changed by whether it was observed or not!
.
The same sort of Photon as was shot out by our long-dead star!
.
THIS IS WHERE IT STARTS TO GET WEIRD.
.
I REMIND YOU AGAIN!
.
DO NOT HAVE NIGHTMARES!

.
Observation is an act of consciousness and will.
.
NOTE!
By Observe, I mean by any means,
Not just Eyesight!
Hearing, Touching, Tasting etc, etc, all count as a conscious choice to enact observation as well!
.
By simply being aware of something and having the will to perceive it you can change what physically happens!
.
One of the Tenants of some wicker Majik is,
.
See
.
Know
.
Will
.
Dare
.
Keep Silent.
.
There are variations depending on the branch of Mysticism being studied, but most follow along with the same lines!
.
.
Majik says that being conscious of something and making the small act of will to observe it can change reality.
.
.
Physics says being conscious of something and making the small act of will to observe it can change a physical causal effect.
.
.
SO IS MAGIC REAL?!
.
.
Errrrr Anyone else feeling a little “Spooked” yet?
.
.
So this opens up this question.
.
.
If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it,
Will it still make a sound?
.
.
George Berkley, Treaties concerning the principles of human knowledge 1710 
Though obviously that version was written in a 1710 style! 
The current phrasing appears to have originated in the 1910 book Physics by Charles Riborg Mann and George Ransom Twiss
.
How much power does the act of consciously observing things have?

.
And what if it is not a one-way street?
.
What is the thing we make the act of will to consciously observe, can affect us back?
.
.
"He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby becomes a monster.
And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee."

.
.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil. 1886 
.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (15 October 1844 – 25 August 1900) was a German philosopher, whose critiques of contemporary culture, religion, and philosophy centred on a basic question regarding the foundation of values and morality. 
.
Personally, I do not like him.

.
I think he is a total arse hat teaching how to use intellectualism to self-licensed and justify doing evil stuff!
.
Probably because he was inappropriately romantically obsessed with his own sister!
.
The scary thing is,
That consciously observing can affect us back?
.
Because while you noting (or not noting) the path of a visible light photon can change what 'it' does!
.
The same conscious act of will to observe that visible light photon will affect you back by making you inspired to both create, feel, love and hate!
And destroy!
.
.
I Now Choose To Drink Far Less Beer!

UPDATE 24th NOV 2018
.
Has Physics Accidentally Proven The Existence Of The Mystical?
.
One person has said to me.
.
“ the answer is no. The supernatural cannot be investigated with science. Science is the study of the natural world.”
.
My reply was this.
.
OR? Maybe, what we call the supernatural is just parts of the natural world we have not explained yet.
.
We used to consider Lightning as a supernatural force until science explained it as a natural phenomenon.
.
Is today's supernatural just tomorrow's science?
.
Many things we take for granted would seem miraculous and "Magical" to a less technologically advanced society.
.
Of course, terms like “Science” or “Supernatural” are just labels we use.
.
Being pedantic and playing with semantics can only get us so far.
.
Because at the end of the day, whatever forces are out there do not care if we label them “Supernatural” or “Science,”
.
Lightning hitting someone thinking it is a sign of the gods will do just as much damage to them as it would to someone who happens to know that is only an electrical charge.
.
The lightning does not give two craps about the opinion of the person who has been hit.
.
Because we are just mere arrogant, self-delusional humans that happen to think that to stick a flag in something somehow makes it ours and gives us some sort of control over it.

! . The support ticket I filled out for Blizzard Games. . I have had a particularly tough year, . One small highlight was watching BlizzCon live with the virtual ticket. . So I managed, with a bit of sacrifice, to not only find the money for the (now more expensive ticket) but also £20 worth of Pizza to make the whole night a bit of a personal occasion. . But halfway through the Overwatch part of the opening ceremony, the feed kept closing, changing to the wrong language, and this kept happening to the point that it became unstable! . Yes,, while I can watch it all again later when OR if it is fixed, but it is is not the same. It has not got the same energy as seeing that opening ceremony live and hearing the cool stuff, first hand. . Maybe I put too much   store  i n this one treat to make life seem a little better at the moment, and of course part of me knows that I am overreacting, but I am just too psychologically tired now to even feel angry. .
