Perception is a mirror, not a fact. ~ Lesson 304, A Course in Miracles

welcome to reality

This morning, I came across what some would consider a revolutionary article. It suggested reality is not objective. The article was based on a new quantum physics experiment, reported in MIT Technology Review.
