I recently chimed into a forum discussing the subject of quantum physics, and the implications thereof.
Out of which came some ways of explaining my views in a more 'elegant' manner.
Years ago, when in a self-development course, the teacher said "you're 100% responsible for your reality" ... me, in response "nah, that can't be true" (in class), He, "it's 100%". Me, "Nah, it can't be because ... yadda yadda". Class now cranky with me, an upstart who won't sit quietly and obediently listen.
Long story short. It is a literal 100%. I've done a lot of work over the years to nail the mechanics of how that can occur.
But here's the thing. If not 100%, then what figure is it? 100% has a certain 'purity' to it that I found compelling.
Science can't get near that 100%, blaming chance, or randomness or god knows what else. That's inelegant.
100% is elegant.
