THE ANGLOSPHERIC INSIGHT:

Objective reality may not exist, European researchers say (KEVIN DICKINSON, 11 April, 2019, Big Think)

Objective reality cannot be known. It's the kind of statement you expect to hear from a sophomore postmodernist or nihilists after they've torched your car. Not a group of scientists.

Yet that is the result of a recent study published in the preprint journal arXiv. Basing their investigation on a famous thought experiment developed by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Eugene Wigner in 1961, the study's researchers devised a way for observers to measure a photon's state differently, despite each measurement being equally valid.

The primacy of Faith has always been obvious, just hard to accept.
