The more I study the new physics model including much of the holographic universe, the more I find it all hangs together in a way that the paradox of the standard model and quantum mechanics makes increasingly irrelevant. The materialist science junkies are relegated to smashing things up into smaller and smaller (metaphysical?) pieces while all the cool kids like Nassim Haramein and Jay Weidner are weaving them together into toroidal shaped vortexes of beauty and harmony.
Michael Talbot died prematurely from a rare cancer, and falls into that group of thinkers who challenged the materialist message sold by consumer fetishism's priests and scientists. People like John Lennon, Bob Marley and Bill Hicks who also died early, and for whom I question the nature of their death.
Remember: Study hard, work harder, consume as hard as you can and borrow hardest. Never question the premise of it all.
