    I began learning Czech, and began dreaming poetry in Czech, but with words I wasn't familiar with. But when I looked them up, the were actual words. And they rhymed.

    I think in Chinese, but I've never learned the language.

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Firstly, no one really thinks in a particular "language". Thoughts are simply conveyed through language during the communication process.

    Secondly, No.

    Thirdly, I will sometimes speak Japanese when I intended to speak English. This is probably the result of immersing myself in my Japanese Foreign Language Class too much.

    There were three phrases I could make out.

    "Zushlagen," followed by a person slamming their first on their hand, and then a door slamming. I think it has a meaning along the lines of slam.

    "Grill in tog," and I saw something being burned. I think it has something to do with burning and time.

    "slitten fewren!" also appeared, and I got the vague idea of snow and rapid movement.

    I don't know if those are actual German words or not. I heard many other words, but ended up focusing on the ideas going through my head as I spoke them (which gave me the meanings) rather than the words being spoken, so I don't remember them.
    Zushlagen = Zuschlagen, which is very cruel. The other two made no sense to me

    But I do have to say, those terms might be applicable as well... what was being grilled might have been the dead. And there's a possibility that they were being transported on trains. Maybe there was cannibalism? I don't remember well, I've tried to block it out.
    No nothing shocking The smile was meant to convey more "confusion" than "shock".

    I don't think so. I definitely think in words when I'm dealing with certain concepts.

    A theory of one.
    It is the only theory that can possibly explain the phenomenon.

    What is real? If the wave function is real, and the wave function collapse is not, many worlds come by.
    The many worlds theory is not the only alternative to the Bohr dictate.

    Einstein said: God does not throw dice.
    Bohr said: Do not tell God what to do.
    Einstein said: Is the moon there when you are not looking at it?

    In other words:
    Suppose the wave function collapse is real as well.
    The moon is there when you do not look?

    We would not be in this mess if Bohr had not won the day in Copenhagen.
    One man, one vote. Politics is bad science.

    We have to wind back the clock.
    What if the collapse is linked to stress in relativistic spacetime?

    If so, we are back to one universe. Without Bohr.
    Roger Penrose did wind back the clock.

    Ambivalence is an illusion.
    In Copenhagen they discussed about what. It is about when what.
    When gravity comes into the question?

    The answer is in the loci, respective the mass.
    The particle property is respective of curvature.

    Neuroscience should catch up. It seems a new door is open in the study of consciousness.
    It seems the moon is there all right.

    Heisenberg visited Bohr in the early 40s. The Germans wanted tubing for their bicycles, alloy ones... Maybe, maybe not.

    Heisenberg learned Danish and he a Bohr spoke in Danish.

    Did Heisenberg think in Danish?

    Of course he didn't. If he had, he would never have went to Copenhagen.

    So true ..
    Erich Kastner did not think in Danish either. He went to Copenhagen, too.
    Later, before the war ended, he hid in the mountains in the south. He pretended he was making a movie. He had the camera, but no film.
    Wolfie did not catch him. All the wise people hid in the mountains. Alberto Moravia hid in the mountains, too. The Russians arrived one day and raped all the women. He wrote a book about the mountain experience. It was called two women. Mother and daughter. A true story.

    Maybe we have to thank Heisenberg that Wolfie did not make the bomb. He called theoretical physics a Jewish science.
    The Russians were in Copenhagen, too. The war had already ended. Koba was always a little late in the scene. But he had the bomb made before the decade was out. Thanks to Beria. The Mingrelian chap with the pince-nez.

    When I watch movies in the night, I always choose Danish subtitles.
    In Scandinavia, you cannot choose English.
