If you don't believe me, here's one example. This appears to be a news article out of the Philippines, where they are claiming that there's no difference between what QM is saying, and what mystics are saying.
This negative attitude may soon change. Psychics and mystics have found an unexpected ally within the ranks of a relatively new scientific field called by various names like quantum mechanics, modern physics, particle physics and, lately, quantum physics.
In fact, the way pioneers of quantum physics describe the ultimate nature of physical reality is often indistinguishable from the way mystics talk about it.
This uncanny and incredible parallelism in the thinking of both mystics and modern physicists was not lost on several keen observers of recent developments in science.
These people obviously forgot one VERY IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE - EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE.
I suppose when one is scientifically illiterate, that issue never crossed one's mind.
The "weirdness" of QM are well-tested, not only qualitatively, but also QUANTITATIVELY! And they can be produced almost on demand - just look at your modern electronics. We know QM well enough that we USE it for practical purposes.
Now when was the last time your local neighborhood psychic can produce a transistor?
So yes, there is a HUGE difference. But if you are blind, how can you tell? So the bastardization continues.
