Well, I'll be....and all this time I never knew it went anywhere.

EDIT: The academic mind seems quite quantum to me: If it's looking for it it's there, if not, it's not.

But now that I think on't, that's the way we're all built. The academics are just more vocal about it.

It's a good point. And the idea of the mind as a quantum field metaphor is now getting more attention in cognitive psychology.
