    First, it rarely translates that absolutely in practice. Second not everything reveals itself to the experimental approach. Third, what is called the observer effect is actual, and far more pronounce than most would think. Fourth, not all areas of exploration beyond materialism produce physical data. Fifth, style it as one will, it is still a clinging to the idea that the intellect, rationality and logic will lead to knowledge in any\/every area.

    I was commenting about Nietzsche.

    Really, QM aka Quantum Physics is not a science, then what is it?

    My apologies for misreading.

    My statement was: QM is not considered "a science. " It is considered a theory, a specialization or a branch within a science. Physics being the science. Nit-picky yes . . . which is why it was a BTW.

    It means someone that follows nearly every posting of someone by either clicking like or dislike etc., but never actually posting themselves. Rosebud is or was a member. Rosebudding. :)
