Tolle basically claims his way as the only true way for everybody.

 

I receive much crackpot email. There is a very common misunderstanding often central, one I have not seen a good answer to anywhere. This is partially due to that few who write about physics counter crackpot theories well. Allow me to explain this point with a new personal story before explaining why energy seems quantized, why photons seem to be little packets of energy rather than a concept that describes quantum interactions more or less well.

A rare opportunity, likely unique in its clarity of how different interests clash, a look behind the curtains of ‘scientific peer review’ corrupting science; moreover, revealing sniffs of the swamp that is the established community researching memristors, but the implications are general and can be only more severe with issues where more money than Hewlett Packard’s is involved or powerful political interests such as with global warming.
