Even if not directly applicable, quantum effects can be very imp't for
macroscopic beings--witness use of the these effects by enzymes,
navigation by flutterbys and probably birds--magneto-reception is very
likely based on the production of quantum entangled radical pairs that
interact differently with the earth's magnetic field,


As Einstein said, "Reality is merely an illusion albeit a very persistent
one," or better yet from the  american science fiction writer Philip K
Dick, "Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go
away,"  Mike

Three things.  I realized yet again I don't really understand any of this.
Fascination, but without deep understanding.  This applies to many of the
topics discussed on this list.

Second, I lament an inability to add intelligently to the discussions.

But third:  this is a great example of why I've lurked on this list for,
maybe (I don't recall precisely when I started), 20 years or more.  While I
am certainly an Oly fanatic and hence do get a lot of great information on
topic,  it's the non-Oly stuff, non-photographic stuff,  that's so valuable
to me. Horizon expanding, and it often provides great references to be
pursued.   Just wonderful.

Thanks, all.  Especially in these times,  thanks for the low-keyed tone of
these conversations.
