All of the philosophers and physicists who have ever lived have been wrong about the real Universe because they failed to consider whether or not there could be only one verifiable universal physical condition. They compounded this lack of consideration by trying to incorporate complex, finite abstract mathematical systems into their thought processes in order to try to produce some sort of predictable reliability in the seeming chaotic diversity of reality.

Obviously, Nature must have...


Post-truth or post-sanity world?

Nature: "The Oxford Dictionaries named 'post-truth' as their 2016 Word of the Year. It must sound alien to scientists. Science's quest for knowledge about reality presupposes the importance of truth, both as an end in itself and as a means of resolving problems. How could truth become passé? [...] Post-truth refers to blatant lies being routine across society, and it means that politicians can lie without condemnation. This is different from the cliché...
