Quantum Physics and Occult Thinking

July 9th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Here’s another video of Mitch Horowitz from the Big Think series. In this one he talks about Quantum Physics and Occult thinking.

Though experiments in Quantum Physics have turned up remarkable, and sometimes seemingly magical events on the quantum level, Horowitz cautions New Agers and Occultists from jumping to conclusions.

Phenomena like entanglement and the uncertainty principle are exciting. But they don’t prove telepathy, clairvoyance, or the power of positive thinking.

They can and should, however, get us to pay attention and start a conversation. Something interesting is going on. We just don’t understand it yet.
