    There's a world of difference between babying and neglect. Maybe it's kind of like with kids: minimal oversight is best? With plants, letting the weakest die off makes the next generation easier to work with, or it just means... nothing to eat, sometimes.

    It's fun and easy but some years you don't eat much.

    I tend to agree with your observations. I can actually buy that consciousness interacts with physical reality, and even the idea that the universe is made up of information (this is the most compelling aspect, in my view). I can even buy that once info is in this reality (via observation), it's here for good, and the reason for that would be evolution. Let's say everything remained in its quantum state, and we could somehow observe that without it remaining in this universe. There would be desert, then ocean, then snow, then jungle, every possible combination, so life would be unable to establish itself where the conditions are so in flux. So this is the mechanism by which time appears to be an orderly series of events. So far so good, for me, since there is at least a arguable scientific basis for it.

    Then he starts to bring in subjective concepts such as reincarnation, the "Absolute Unbounded Manifold" which is just a new age-y way of describing "the big guy" creator, and I can't really buy into those aspects at all. This also largely comes from his own experiments, observations, and out of body experiences, which, to me, are notoriously unreliable. So while I am very compelled by the overall idea, the devil is in the details, so to speak. I actually hope the philosophy is developed further, and backed up by more scientific ideas.

    Thanks! It's something that is increasingly bothering me as I begin to peel back the layers of this onion. It really does infuriate me.

    Covers quite comprehensively what you were speaking of in your post - the reduction of human proclivity to violence over the years.

    OOH! Have you read Steven Pinker's "The Better Angels of Our Nature"?

    LOL, no worries. Me either. Only time will tell for certain. I stand by my assertion that insufficient time has elapsed to determine whether Buffett has inspired copy-cats who will duplicate his success. I find that portion of your analysis faulty. He can't be dismissed as lucky or a fluke on that basis yet. And really, he can never be labelled such on that basis alone. The possibility exists that he simply is smarter than the rest of us when it comes to risk evaluation and resource allocation. I don't think that is true though, and tend to agree with you in that if there is a method to his madness someone will identify and understand it, maybe several people will.
