"I tell people that the only thing I've learned in 55 yrs of living is that I was right all along." - FCorelli


When I was a kid my mom used to always say "truth is stranger than fiction." At that time I thought there was no way that could be true....

Until I started reading popular physics books and learning about quantum physics. Then all of a sudden my entire world view was thrown into chaos. Atoms are mostly ghostly empty space, the sub atomic particles themselves are hardly like anything we think of as matter, being more like swirling eddies in a stream than a rock or a BB, able to communicate with one another instantly over vast distances, appear and disappear, etc.

Or like Niels Bohr said, "If quantum mechanics hasn't profoundly shocked you, you haven't understood it yet."

and, "Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real."

I was wrong and my mom was right, truth is stranger than fiction.
