...there are problems with thinking one can imagine a thing and it can/will happen. But Science is based to a degree on imagination or guesses as Prof Feynman in this clip says [www.youtube.com] 'the essence of Science' R Feynman, 1 min.
I agree with both points you make.
It is the proof of that imagined concept/theory that makes it real science.
I would say, it is the evidence that the imagined hypothesis leads to, that becomes a ‘proof.’ If these is no evidence then it would be blue sky thinking gone awry.
As science goes into realms beyond simple experiment it becomes difficult, same with Human experience when we go beyond normal everyday stuff we have the same problems.
That is why, in science, evidence is so important and, in everyday life, humility and being grounded are so important.
QM as Prof Michioi Kaku of City Uni, New York has said, ‘Common Sense is violated in the Quantum world’ the same happens with human experience as we go deeper into the silence at our core, it can get freaky because one understands that this world is not reality. but in the experience of Union an understanding of the heart is opened to us and it satisfies, completes us.
Unfortunately, I have a different viewpoint on QM. People think that common sense is the same in everybody but I suggest like there are many religions, there are also many understandings of what constitutes common sense. For me, common sense would be to understand ‘reality’ on the quantum level as electrons and field theory and, in everyday life, reality is the experience of things on the macro level of people, dogs and cats etc. Reality is reality is reality. Kind of like a rose!
About morality, I think that morality is almost always an effort to solve problems caused when our ethical sentiments or biasses are not working. Thus morality has to do with life’s actual problems not our theoretical imaginings.
