Science carried out its analysis of nature to the point where it shot itself in the foot. Science carried out an analysis of nature that went to such depth that it discovered that nature doesn’t exist except as an object of description. It discovered that there are no little objects winging their way through empty space. There is only a situation described by a multilayer, fishy formula, and when you drop a mind into that situation, the fishy formula condense out into a little particle which can be measured. A mind is necessary for the universe to undergo the formality of existing. This is what quantum physics teaches. Unfortunately, this news has not reached the other sciences. This is a real failure on the part of science.
