Readings - This is part of a correspondence between Sheldon Goldstein and Steven Weinberg on Bohmian Mechanics. It is published here with the kind permission of both. From: To: Subject: NYRB Date: Sun, Sep 22 1996, 17:14:44 Dear Professor Weinberg, In your recent response in the NYRB, you ask George Levine, my colleague here at Rutgers, to "suppose that physicists were to announce the discovery that, beneath the apparently quantum mechanical appearance of atoms, there lies a more fundamental substructure of fields and particles that behave according to the rules of plain old classical mechanics." I agree with your point that this should make little difference to our views about culture or philosophy. Best, Shelly Goldstein From: To: Subject: Bohm's quantum mechanics Date: Tue, 24 Sep 1996, 21:01:39 -0500 (CDT) Dear Professor Oldstein, I have carried out the experiment you requested.

Dr. Ken Glasziou 1. The expectations of readers about the content of The Urantia Book are manifold. On page 24 we read: "The existence of God can never be proved by scientific experiment or by the pure reason of logical deduction. You're on your own? The book, then, throws us back upon our own resources. A consistent and logical universe philosophy What then can we gain from the science and physical cosmology in The Urantia Book? Even if some of its science is now outdated, there can be no doubt that The Urantia Book provides us with a synthesis of cosmology, philosophy, and the theology of religion that is unequaled in its extent and scope. What is free will? What constitutes free will? Logically then, if I am to have true free will, I cannot be provided with unequivocal knowledge that to elect not to conform my will to the will of God ultimately will bring about my eventual annihilation.

What Makes Stars Shine? "In those suns which are encircuited in the space-energy channels, solar energy is liberated by various complex nuclear-reaction chains, the most common of which is the hydrogen-carbon-helium reaction. In 1934, when the Paper providing this information about sources of solar energy was received, the detail of the conversion of hydrogen to helium, as postulated by J. The carbon-nitrogen cycle that converts hydrogen to helium with the release of energy is a catalytic reaction in which carbon enters and leaves the reaction apparently unscathed. 1. 2.
