Ben, Danny (and list),
Thanks for your interesting last posts, which I think I need to digest
so as to been able to answer them synthetically for avoiding
repetitions or too much awkwardness. So I will answer them at ease, and
send comments as soon as possible.
The posts are:
BTW, Danny, neither my emailer, nor apparently the archive can handle
accurately the go-to-line printing procedure of your emailer system.
You should perhaps go to line manually. I can read your message in
Ben's post, or by handling it manually myself. This happens sometimes.
In the meanwhile I repeat your post below.
-------------- Danny's Post -----------------------
I doubt Marchal's ideas will be made widely known or popularized in the
foreseeable future. The problem isn't with the name of his theory, or
with any problem with Bruno per se beyond this: There doesn't seem to
be an easily reducible way to summarize the theory in a manner that is
digestible to anyone beyond the highly specialized in similar fields.
I certainly understand the basics of some of his ideas, but when it
gets into all his logical analysis I just have never found myself
willing to devote myself to the time required to really get into the
detail of where he is coming from. And I would consider myself highly
interested in these topics and at least reasonably intelligent.
Even something as mundane as the MWI (to this group at least) runs into
a brickwall when presented to the layperson. You should see the
conversations I have with my wife. Tell people everything is made of
strings. Or space and time can be warped and curved. They may not
understand the science and math behind it at all, but at least you are
speaking their language.
The world is not ready for his ideas. Even for the most part the world
of scientists in my opinion.
