Science and Magic
I finally got myself to the MPRC discussion night. The topic was "Science and Magic". How could I miss that? It was a pretty good discussion. Lot's of thoughtful dialogue all around. I avoided leaping across the room every time someone tried to apply quantum mechanics to the macro-sized environment, bit my tongue during the incredibly New Age 'fieldy' explanation of entanglement , and managed not to take it too personally when the ethics (or perhaps moral values?) of science and scientists were questioned. Hopefully I can go to future ones.
