Demonstrable how? Even the particle physics guys are claiming that
everything is connected at the sub-atomic particle level. So, maybe my
intentions can effect you? It's not ~impossible~, maybe improbable is a
better word, but there is no dead proof that can deny the effect exists.
Does the Sun think? It's incredibly large and dense, just maybe it
thinks on a scale we cannot conceive of? It's been reported that when
meteors are about to strike the Sun, a plasma jet reaches out to burn
the asteroid up before it actually strikes the surface. Early warning
system? Self protection from "pain"? Can you prove that the Sun doesn't
think? Hell, you nor I can prove either which way yet, but that doesn't
preclude the possibility. Maybe we're not worth talking to.
So, we're merely left with speculation. Since the Universe was one
thing, at one time before time, maybe it thought? Super cold = super
conductive, right? When it spread itself, did it become destroyed and
no longer thinking, or vastened, still thinking? Heh, and we're part of
that. Ergo, who's to say that some Bushman in the Outback has it wrong?
Not me. I haven't unraveled the mysteries to Life, the Universe and
Everything. Not yet. But, neither has anyone else. <chuckles> :) Ric
