    Tell ya what,, when you can come up with a good theory to explain quantum mechanics from a materialistic worldview, then get back to me on it.

    It's all done with magic strings.
    There, done, next! :D

    How about doing it the other way around? Explain how a materialistic worldview is coherent, if it is, with QM.

    What, one that doesn't involve furious hand waving and specious analogies to 1980s computer science?

    Hmmm...hold on there....

    And 1970s optical tricks as well.

    It is a rather heavy thought.

    It bends, but never breaks.

    With respect to parallel lines.

    I believe the correct answer is intrinsic Gaussian curvature. But something tells me I've misremembered. Something about the metric g

    "the metric g"

    Great name for a band.

    Lexx is the greatest SF TV series of all time. It's got everything. Drama, silliness, humor, great sets and FX, a remarkable degree of creativity, and even just a little sexiness.
    The second season is kind of crap, but the pilot and first season are great. Then carried on more coherently in the third season and later shows.

    I think the influence of Samuel Delaney is evident throughout.

    I was a huge Farscape fan. I would have been a Serenity fan had it run on. But really, Stargate SG-1 is my favourite.
    Oh and Babylon 5 too. Battlestar Galactica - not so much
