Stealing the surface of science

“Our trials show that when people make contact with light encoded information at a quantum level with the support of … applications they can access optimal states of wholeness.” (text from an actual website trying to sell a magical machine.)

There’s a lot of this sort of thing out there. There’s a sort of illusion of science that the author of the above text is trying to conjure. Trials, quantum, applications, optimal states – it’s a language that is supposed to sound sciencey, to validate something that has nothing whatsoever to do with actual science.

        Also, it was only recently I came into contact with the Zombie Apocalypse Survival Homestead, you have great stuff on your blog man!! It’s good to share a discussion with you…

        Have a great rest of your weekend sir!
