    To perceive the world our radar must be faster than the world. If our radar (or perhaps it is just our rate of picture-taking) is not fast enough then a passing object is perhaps a blur or not even perceived to be there.
    The more snapshots or frames of a passing object we take the more it appears to slow down.
    How could we even measure the speed of light, for instance, if our perception of it was not faster than it?
    If our sight works like radar ( but I know there is no proof of this) then sunlight is only a catalyst?

    Our proof is that in times of personal crises many individuals have reported seeing the world in slow motion.

    So science blurs into psychology because of this factor? Yes and no, not necessarily.

    if we have radar:

    (1) we have an idea of the world in mind (this idea of sight radar is how robots work isnt it?)

    (2) a probe is sent out to justify our idea
    (3) receptors confirm or deny our idea
    (4) How do we react to the news that our view is denied?: We try to change our idea of the world and send out a different probe. We say the world needs to be changed to conform to our idea. We are just not finding our idea of a world in the world, its there but not obvious -- our perception or radar is fuzzy.

    But we can say our idea of the world depends on the type of probes we send out -- how many different probes are there?

    But leaving that question open, the point is, our speed of taking pictures changes the perceived speed of the world. And in that case, 'measuring anything and agreeing' is only an exercise in conformity and not an exercise in reality determination.

    So science is pointless?

    No it means we all have a range of speeds in common we can see the world at, it just means it is artificial, pointless, and overly-fussy to agree on details. The speed of light can vary depending on the individual's ability to change his picture-taking speed. Or to put it another way, we can all agree on the nest but not on the ring number. Hence our 'Table of Elements' for example we can allow to vary: it will have more elements for some and less for others.

    This means reality is different for different people but each reality is a nest with a ring number. Hence strict draconian 'conformity for survival', as in time of war, is not necessary. If all the "soldiers" have a nest -- who cares if some have more rings than others? 'Strict conformity for survival' is not a nest, it is a doughnut that dissipates energy, causing illness and weakness in "the soldiers".

    So as scientists, adoption of the nest as standard paves the way for a more tolerant society. For example 3.003 will vary from individual to individual.

    (The nest has always been there -- as the mean or standard distribution curve in statistics and the maximum power transfer curve (MPT) in electrical engineering and possible the 'power-per-nucleon to atomic-number curve' -- but its true value was never recognized before.)

    I am seeking supporters for a qualitative basis of science, not quantative. Quality: precision,shape, color, pitch. Quantity: power,size,brightness,volume. A quality can be found as a ratio of quantities. Mass is a quality.

    yay for utter gobbledygook that does not actually mean anything.
