Parker Moore Posted over 3 years ago Why for so many is it science or religion with no room inbetween for honest existential consideration? Relating to Buster the dog, the Schrodinger's Cat experiment does, in a sense, prove to the dog that he is the universe. That is how people see the interactions of everything around them; centered around themselves because all they can view is themselves. They are limited to the specific scope directly affected by the data inflow from senses. This includes reading, talking, feeling, smelling, etc. I guess some of the poor logic there is that I can exist in a world quite different than I perceive, such as one where I am the only real human being, and everyone else is a test person designed to understand how I work. This is not a scientifically disprovable hypothesis because of the lack of reputable data involved with hiding from robots. Putting aside elementary logic, It is conceivable that we could try and communicate with this universal consciousness and test to see if "it" has any effect on the real world. This is testable. Are we certain to get very good results? In my viewpoint, no. But it is still a theory.
