The difference is the following. Some say there is a broken glass, but
to ask "why there is a broken glass?". That is what some materialist, and

irremediably idiot anyone trying to search on that problem.
There seems to be a lot of attributing of opinions to others. My friend Vic
Stenger, who's about as reductionist and physicalist as one can be, has
book, "The Comprehensible Cosmos" about the origin of physical "laws",
which he says
are just models we create. I don't know of any physicist who insists that
find an explanation for physical laws -
although very few of them think the probability of success makes the study
Doesn't this make the point? Their positions influence research/funding and low
probability means practically "stupid"... also, how should anyone about probabilities
with such a question? Not hubris? PGC
You're perfectly free to pursue the subject. Everybody has to decide for themselves how
to spend their life. I don't think they owe you an explanation for their decision.
