I guess in a very long winded way I'm saying there is more to it than grey matter. I'm not saying ghosts are real I'm just saying grey matter is just the result of something else that is even more powerful and meaningful. Something else that makes you you to start with, and can hold some really powerful information. Nature / Nurture theories just got bitch slapped hard!
somehow it knows? instinct. DNA. animal behavior is encoded, bruh. read a book.

more powerful and meaningful? bullshit. it's the gooey, reactive material we happen to have. full stop. we humans are hungry for patterns and meaning, does not necessitate they be so.

Chewy sealed the deal with the dead fetuses haunting Andrea

I almost spit out my juice when Chewy made the joke about the dead babies haunting Andrea!

I loved the arc of this episode. I know when POC's and/or Queer folks come on the show, Keith's overwhelming bro/cop persona is off-putting.

I could feel Chewy going on the offensive in the beginning and I wanted to be like "no it's ok, he's like a deliberate caricature of those dudes" (well at least most of the time

I was scared it was gonna fuck up the whole episode but then everyone loosened up and we got a peek into Chewy's "sick bitch" humor.
I loved it!
please have her back!

SCIENCE!

Science has proven again and again the the laws of physics are consistent across our universe. Gravity waves, this Higgs Boson, black holes, quantum coupling, etc...

Now if you mean other universes don't work the same, then yeah that's very likely. If you mean different as in what life might be like if say a life sustaining planet in a safe orbit around a black hole might be like, it could be very different or much the same, time would be weird by comparison. But time/space and electromagnetism would be consistent and relative to the forces affecting the planet and have a calculable relationship to the same forces we experience on Earth. Not really different from a physics view point.

I'm assuming Sparrow is talking about the multiverse theory regarding the conditions being different in different areas. There are a few questions which have yet to be answered: 1. Are is the deal with the constant numbers used in equations to make everything work, 2. What is beyond the visible edge of our Universe?

There was hope that the LHC would determine which theory regarding the whole Universe was more likely based on the measurements of the Higgs Boson. Instead, the measurements fell right in the middle between the two theories.

I read plenty of books, and that's right "Somehow it knows" and we don't know how it knows. I don't know what your point is besides being insulting.

It's just not so simple, we used to think the "encoding" was in the grey matter. There are patterns and meaning, its the mystic crap that tries to explain it away. Science looks for the pattern, the formula, the why and how. What is instinct how does DNA tell a Monarch to create super Monarch every 7 or 8 generations so it can survive the journey back to Mexico. How does the DNA replicating sequence change automatically, and what in the butterfly makes it lay its eggs on plant 'A' and not any of the thousands of others available. It's not grey matter, because that doesn't carry over directly.

I never understand why people want to believe in ghosts. Isn't comforting to know that you won't get trapped here as an eternal crazy being?

fine. it's totally God and magic. my bad. anything we don't know yet or can't know is witchery and proof of said witchery.

You can't help yourself can you? Is jumping to conclusions and not actually reading what is said your profession or just a hobby.

If anything, being a scientist has taught me how little we can explain about the world around us.

Once you get pass the basics everything becomes a educated guessing game.

Even the stuff we think we know as unquestionable fact can be disproven tomorrow and start a paradigm shift in the field.

Maybe there are supernatural beings around us.

Absence of proof isn't proof of absence.

Maybe the lack of proof is just an indication of a lack of technology needed to observe it, not an indication that its nonexistent.

I just can't be as sure about the existence or non-existence of ghost as some people.
