quantum mechanics

A Quote by Huston Smith on ancient wisdom, animals, distinction, fabric, quantum mechanics, quantum physicists, quantum physics, subatomic particles, and weave

Ancient wisdom and quantum physicists make unlikely bedfellows: In quantum mechanics the observer determines (or even brings into being) what is observed, and so, too, for the Tiwis, who dissolve the distinction between themselves and the cosmos. In quantum physics, subatomic particles influence each other from a distance, and this tallies with the aboriginal view, in which people, animals, rocks, and trees all weave together in the same interwoven fabric.
