Still with the 'Doctor' Tom in the intro.

I guess I'll refrain in the future from pointing out the discrepancy as I recently did in the past. Apparently it's a non-issue as it should be.

Back to the YT.

No keep pointing it out. I used to I don't know why I didn't this time. All I know is that when:)/if I actually make it to and then through the dissertation process with this PhD there will be an aspect to it for me of feeling "not worthy" since I'd have one and the smartest man I know doesn't...Sort of a sheepish pride feeling, not a bad thing, just Reality. :)

Actively keeping misinformation out of the system is a good thing. :)
Love
Bette

haha..I wouldn't worry about that:), getting a PhD is more of an endurance test than an intelligence test- Good luck with your endeavor!

Bette-

As I understand, Tom has completed all the work for his PhD, just couldn't stick around to pick up the paper. Someday, UVA may decide to give him the piece of paper after 45 years of the most significant research in the field of physics ever accomplished.

What's this speculation based on ?

Okay. My point is that it's just a piece of paper. It doesn't really mean anything. I would say the speculation is an honorary doctorate bestowed once more people publish papers in scholarly peer reviewed journal that support what Tom knows. I speculate Tom doesn't care about that sort of thing, too. I will say with my renewed access to the academic databases consciousness is all over the place as I am doing this weeks writing assignment answering questions on both the why neuroscience are researching the specific "divisions of the brain" scientists are researching most (without giving that bit of data as to what they are researching the most right now, an ambiguous question) and then what area I would research most, and I am going with Consciousness while I am saying current science is after data about controlling behaviors deemed mental illness, I think, rather than understanding the behavior better. I best get to work actually it's due tomorrow. Once I type up my citation list I'll post it here somewhere so you'se can see what's out there now.
Love
Bette

Found the video on Youtube, it works :)

http://youtu.be/ejGRbt-ot-4 , looks like it was re-uploaded because of a spelling error in Tom's name.

doing all the work for the PhD, then not bothering to finish, is part of the charm of Tom's style

most would not be able to resist the ego aspect of going the last lap and getting the title

its similar to his approach toward vegetarianism, never buying a meat meal, but cleaning the meat off of someone else's plate (or claiming he does so), which removes the ego judgemental aspect of militant vegetarianism...see a pattern here?

I do wince when I hear the title being incorrectly applied, but I presume Tom has made the mental cost benefit calculation which points to non-intervention in the context of the bigger picture, the flow of conversation and the potential for loss of face by the interviewer.

From my possibly more limited point of view, I would think it would be better for him to make a joke about it in real time to ensure no-one accuses him of stolen valor by error of omission,.... in order to protect the MBTOE "brand" longer term.

That being said, one must guard against guruism...and build our personal philosophical foundation on the "teaching", the meme, the science, rather than the teacher, such that...even if there were to be a scandal, possibly contrived, one day regarding Tom, one should be able to continue up the path of the "teaching" or "model" undisturbed.
