Audience Reviews for The Quantum Activist

Avoid like the plague. Not in the least about quantum physics. Just an hour of existential dribble and nonsense that the professor claims was influenced by his understanding of quantum physics. The collective consciousness. The mind's selection of actuality from possible realities. Sheesh. Here's a line from his website: "In our brain, we become one with the neuronal images of an external object because of a tangled-hierarchy, a circularity." Check out the guy's website at hisname dot org and you'll get where's he's coming from. Which is a trip from outer space on mushrooms.

Re-read the title of this feature a couple times before deciding to watch it; it's exactly what it implies. I was hoping for an in-depth discussion of quantum physics and how it applies to the reality of our generation; instead, I listened to a boring lecture about dream manifestation/positive thinking and how it applies to universal love, existence of god (supranatural consciousness) and 'green thinking'.

I'm sorry, but a religious interpretation of quantum mechanics, even from someone as intelligent as Amit Goswami, is still little more than spiritual hocus-pocus. Remember that members of this New Age resurgance have tried to pawn this whimsical detritus off on us before...see [i]What the Bleep Do We Know[/i] for details.
