Just kiddin' man!
I love it! I just love it! Think about it! Every question reaches a point in its solution when you can throw a coin to determine the answer. First, you have to understand that everything can be taken to "the level of the particles". Energy and stuff. When you are in "the level of the particles", your reaction to an unexpected kiss is nothing but a series of reactions between stupidly tiny portions of the universe. When you try to understand the behaviour of such particles, you begin to find some problems. It seems the particles react to the fact of being observed. Is the moon really there when nobody looks at her? Well but we do know of the existance of particles which are smaller than electrons, there are quarks and other homies around there. Well, what is it exactly that we can tell about them? Well they are tiny! Yeah thanks Timmy for participating, by the way, why is your arm half way uranus? Nevermind. Quarks is the end of the line for me. I'd love hearing "ignorant!" from the audience right now, but after all this is a monolog, and there is no audience as such. Or is there? Nevermind, i guess, this time. I'll buy it just a little bit more, i'll join you in your microdiving exploring the "subquark" level of stuff. (If you haven't noticed by now, I've been avoiding the use of the word 'matter' to refer to stuff, just because I am stupid and my English sucks, so I wasn't sure if 'matter' is matter anyway. Just beat it.) If we were lost in the quark jungle, we can consider ourselves retards in this level. There is nothing to be known, cause we can't even start to think of being able to measure any propertie of the subject. Right here, you can decide what you want. It's a matter of magnitude. We are quite far from that "subquark" level, so we can't be serious abaout any observation. Right there, just let a coin decide the behaviour of the particle.
