Butcho, yes. My brilliant older son, who actually understands quantum physics, and I share via email our interest in developing research and findings, cosmic events (like the very recent black hole devouring a huge star, with the 'entrance' to the black hole facing toward earth, so the astonishing blast of light was clearly seen here). We follow the work at CERN in Geneva, etc.
ZPF. I agree with you about passing on the New Agey slant on it, but following the pure science I have a steady interior yes, yes, yes happening, recognition, delight. Daguan! Magnificent process, communication, relationship taking place without cease always *between*, inclusive, nothing independent. Energy (yes, chi) exchange from macro to micro-micro to unbelievably micro, quark and beyond, always interconnected, incredibly vast. immediate, intimate reality. Our little personal importances like moods, hurt feelings, traumas and dramas loose significance. Despite our distraction we are never apart from the process. You like to quote "No man is an island". How clear that is!
Quantum physicists have long been sounding more and more like mystics, (Einstein remarked on it often), in complete harmony with Taoism in particular. And now ZPF, refining, expanding, stretching our understanding to stunned silence and Wonder, and a sense of total inclusion, participation in ways still unknown.
My walks in the woods, considering even plant cells communicating in unknown ways...well, once again thought is too puny, wonder is a better companion.
