This has nothing to do with superposition and quantum weirdness. It has to do with nothing.. no thing. Put another way, the absence of anything. It's not logic saying this. Logic is the tool of philosophical reasoning. What we are addressing is the mind's apprehension of reality, and I don't mean this in an uncritical sense.
You only have something to think about because 'something', some object acts upon you.
The word 'object' as Jaki points out in his wonderful book Means to Message: A Treatise on Truth available very inexensively on Kindle.. means litterally.. something thrown at you, the "ject" part is from the french, jetter, to throw.
Nothing does nothing. You are suffering from the same problem Dawkins has which is really just the philosophical vacuum he grew up with in empiricism. I'm not offering a philosophically naive anti-modern view of this. Quite the contrary. I referred a couple of times to the physics which is quite unrelated.
So.. give it a little thought Gary. Honestly.. your sanity is at stake in this.
I'm listening to Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" as I type.. I LOVE the experience of listening to this SOMETHING acting on me. :-)
