A rant

  1. Apr 19, 2006 #1
    why is everything waves?

    light,sound,electricity,gravity,magnetic,radio all waveforms.

    why is everything made from energy(atoms)?,it all seems to made out of the same/similar stuff

    why do i get the feeling this is all part of some giant HOLODECK?

    mmm... electromagnetic waves... 1 thing... encompasses 3 of the things you listed. Also, 2 of those thing's aren't even waves, they're just easily described by wave functions.

    So what? Similarity is not identity.

    The Philosophy section of PF is not the place for rants.
