I feel that I have obtained a huge benefit from having studied physics, especially quantum physics. On the one hand, it has given me a sense of wonder and awe at how the laws of nature work to produce the universe we occupy. The theories are really quite beautiful, the experimental methods used to study them incredibly ingenious, and the implications quite profound.
At the same time, this knowledge prevents me from going overboard. My sense of awe and wonder is of a practical kind, not a mystical one. The appreciation of the mechanics of how things work also give me a healthy sense of what their limits are and so I am not swept away by the grandiose claims of woo-meisters like Deepak Chopra, who string together science language to create total nonsense that sounds profound.
Here is a good takedown of the nonsense that Chopra spouts. The first three minutes of this video is classic science woo that anyone who knows physics immediately realizes is total rubbish. What is astonishing is that Chopra has the nerve to do this at Caltech, of all places, where a significant number of people in the audience know this stuff. But Sam Harris, who is not a physicist either, does a good job of deconstructing Chopra.
