    Your philosophical musing are not just science, like 'something out there that makes observation consistent'. Nothing inherently wrong with it, making an observation. We all have a non scientific paradigm of the universe in some form, Religious or otherwise.
    ? Nothing religious here. We are making observations of a coherent reality. How could it then be woo to stuipulate such a reality?
    Okek dokey. You are right.

    Yeah, We all know you were only an engineer. Not meant as too much of a pejorative sir. Wouldn't you really rather be an Old Crow or a scientist or even a preacher?

    BTW things are only there when we see them because we are material perceivers working mostly in three dimensions at relatively large and slow scale.
