Now it seems to me that wherever I look, anything to do with electro-magnetism or quantum mechanisms has some kind of in-your-face obvious correlation with human relationships. Once I'd had a peek at what transformers were from the inside, it wasn't long before a discussion ran up against the possibility that the heart acts just as a transformer does, in taking energy from source surroundings and transforming it into the energy we put out to the world from within ourselves. This might seem obvious on reflection, especially given that strong coffee, but in the scientific world, nobody really seems to be thinking like this just yet.
On more occasions than any of us would like to count, we've come across (or been involved in) discussions where science and religion create a kind of murky water where both sides agree on the reluctant agreement that there are differences to be agreed upon, and this kind of quasi-political soup is hotting up like quark-gluon plasma all the time. I'm neither religious nor a qualified scientist, so I can look at this queasy picture from an objective point of view. All we're really waiting for is for someone to look past the Standard Model and find the correlation we're all waiting for, the one that quantifies the quantum nature of our very existence, and leaves us free to look at those Laws as they apply to us, and to figure out how much there really is to gain from being a quantum unit.
