- a new movie coming out soon on the cold fusion scene called ‘the Believers,’ [ comment: Uh, oh. I smell some bashing ahead ( with regards to the movie).
- "I see there as being two different ways of looking at belief. “Belief that,” and “belief in“." [ comment: A worthwhile distinction, but will anybody think about it that deeply?]
- "Philip K. Dick said that, “reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.”" [ comment: Dick provided the ideas that went into the blockbuster movies Blade Runner and Total Recall.]
With respect to this blog, I believe that the mastery of energy will raise civilization to a higher level. However, I don't believe in that either. There's a subtle difference that is aptly described in the post as having somewhat a religious nature. If I were to believe in that then, then utopia will be achieved if only energy can be mastered. But there's a problem, which is because human nature, being what it is, may produce an outcome that I don't anticipate. This is always possible. Therefore, I can't believe in it like it was something of a religion.
