Physicist Angelo Bassi is a man after our own heart because he values simplicity. “The simple things in life are more genuine ones. When a person is simple, he’s a better person.”[i] Perhaps, but also we have found it to be true that it is easier to be a “better” person when life is simple.
The human intellect (the thinking brain), and scientists in particular, tend to be anything but simple when searching for the nature of Reality (Oneness). Take the theory involved with quantum mechanics for example. “The theory, in fact, suggests that particles, while they’re not being observed, behave more like waves–a fact called ‘wave-particle duality’ that’s related to how all those latent possibilities seem to indicate that an unobserved particle can exist in several places at once. The act of observation itself is then posited to somehow convert this nonsensical situation into the world we see, of objects having definite locations and other properties. This makes human beings, who are after all the ones making the observations, in essence responsible for conjuring the Reality we experience out of a murky netherworld that quantum mechanics implies is simply unknowable.”[ii]
