It’s funny in a way, but you know some people will think this guy is the next Fritjof Capra.

Oh lordie that back shot was enough… I couldn’t watch… well… come on petie… you’re no prude… OK, I’ll try… but then that minute long disney commercial made it easy to pull the plug.  Maybe my curiosity will get the better of me later.

Story of my life.  I finally watched the thing and what an anti-climax.

That’s the best he could come up with? for rattling his students into “disconnecting” thinking in quantum terms. . . or something like that. . . what eever


As for me, watching this performance artist, physics was the last thing on my mind.    long face
