The New Collectivist's Bible

This work is little more than a tool to shape Collectivist thought. A collection of scientific expressions that have more to do with as closed a belief system as any religion on Earth (I'm sorry - this 'planet,' since many of its contributors seem to detest any form of Individualist expression).

Ponder me this, though: If the new Quantum Theory seems to indicate it is possible that matter created itself out of total nothingness (which has to include the vacuum of what we call Space), then why isn't it as likely a Self-Aware Intelligence (I'll abstain from using the C or G-words) could also spring from nothing? Where's the numbers to prove or disprove such a possibility? Are these esteemed scientists incapable of considering such a probability because they cannot see outside our understanding of 'consciousness?'

I admit I'm enjoying at least the writing quality in this collection, if not the expression, which is so disappointing. I find the free thinkers of Science as boxed-in as the fundamentalists of Religion.


I would file handsome smitty's review under most idiotic

Worth a read

While it may not raise your iq, it is full of the most modern scientific concepts.

Smitty is an idiot. I agree with the reviewer who said so.
