Quantum Mechanics Is Nonsense
Atoms and subatomic particles are ideas and are not real, despite all the university and media hype to the contrary. These intellectuals end up talking about models and ideas. They do not talk about demonstrable nature. They cannot as quantum musings are not founded on real demonstrable principles like one would assume a theory would be. Modern physics is a house of cards built on a foundation of unquestioned assumption. CERN is a just big vacuum tube type experiment. All anyone can do is look at electrical noise and run that noise through mathematical models to massage the results to conform with prior assumptions. The real technology is computer and communications based, you know real demonstrable science not quantum quackery with a cartoon zoo of imagined particles, named like gods and angels of a religion.
We are supposed to let people like this define the boundaries of our imaginations for us. We are supposed to let others do our thinking for us. We are not supposed to disagree with the so-called experts. We are supposed to respect their university backed authority. We are supposed to ignore all the obvious logical fallacies and the fact that these people do not seem to understand how to actually think for themselves as they have long been conditioned to parrot back nonsense over critically trying to understand that nonsense.
Free Will To Act Stupid
Maybe sociologists and psychologists are the people to talk to an not a quantum nonsensical philosopher. This man is not an expert in the field of consciousness any more than you or I. This man won a Nobel Prize for making stuff up.

Modern Scientific Reasoning Does Not Distinguish The Subject of Metaphysics From The General Subject "Science"
Science is a powerful word that magically means whatever the speaker needs it to. "Science" does not seem to need scientists and "science" itself appears to be able to figure things out without people ever getting involved. Underlying assumptions are never really questioned. Particles are assumed to exist. This is obviously not real science but hey everyone else thinks it is, so it must be. After all these people have official university degrees and book deals and so on. Peer reviewed illogically premised, mathematical formula is put forth as evidence to support the fantastic claims of the so-called experts. After all, mathematical models are the same as reality, right?
The self proclaimed authorities all agree that down is up and up is down and 2+2 is 45 so it must be. So-called intellectuals are really not very smart nor wise and their ideas are echoes and little else. These people spend lifetimes and careers writing and musing and lecturing and arguing over cartoonish fictions.
These people are put forth as idols we should emulate. I think we should avoid this kind of behavior. Emulating ignorance is not a good idea.
The great thing about make believe "science" is you can just assume your thought experiments are correct.
The Nobel Prize is Meaningless Propaganda: These People Are Discussing & Fussing Over Models Not Real Nature
"Murray Gell-Mann (/ˈmʌri ˈɡɛl ˈmæn/; born September 15, 1929) is an American physicist who received the 1969 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on the theory of elementary particles. He is the Robert Andrews Millikan Professor of Theoretical Physics Emeritus at the California Institute of Technology, a Distinguished Fellow and co-founder of the Santa Fe Institute, Professor in the Physics and Astronomy Department of the University of New Mexico, and the Presidential Professor of Physics and Medicine at the University of Southern California. Gell-Mann has spent several periods at CERN, among others as a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in 1972."
"He developed the V−A theory of the weak interaction in collaboration with Richard Feynman. In the 1960s, he introduced current algebra as a method of systematically exploiting symmetries to extract predictions from quark models, in the absence of reliable dynamical theory. This method led to model-independent sum rules confirmed by experiment and provided starting points underpinning the development of the Standard Model (SM), the widely accepted theory of elementary particles."
Please Note: Richard Feynman was an early version of the Bow Tie Science Guy:
Cartoonish bongo playing metaphysicians are sold are scientists to the mass unsuspecting public.
Richard Feynman playing bongos
Richard Feynman was another cartoon joke.
Richard Feynman is a perfect example of a parroting propagandist who spent his life selling nonsense to the world. I've watched some of his lectures and he either parrots back the basic college physics 101 curriculum or he blathers on about literal quantum nonsense that is obviously intellectually dishonest and illogically premised. He is a court jester Art Carney like character who sounds like he was doing an impression of a 1950's era New Yorker. He sounds like an old TV star which is all he really was.
