Poor guy, Ford called him a crazy person with no scientific knowledge.

Who are you talking about unnamed and who is the Ford you refer to? Brian Whitworth is our contemporary while Ford might be Henry of early motorcars who is long dead or it might be Ford Prefect of fiction. You need to be more clear and explicit to be understood.

You still have not identified the unnamed person you refer to. If you are referring to Brian Whitworth, here is a brief list of what he does quoted from his own web site. We prefer links to bare claims of 'they' said. http://www.theuniversesolved.com/bio-br ... tworth.htm
Quote:
Brian Whitworth has degrees in psychology, math, and information systems (PhD). He is currently a senior lecturer in Information Systems at Massey University of the University of New Zealand. His research and publications over the years has centered around the overlap of technical and social issues, such as online rights, social online environments, and the comparison of human and computer information processing.
He is a fairly well known academic and he and Tom Campbell have corresponded about their understandings of Virtual Reality.

Brian Whitworth has recently updated his quantum realism site https://brianwhitworth.com/quantum-realism/ to be mobile-friendly, and rejigged the chapters into smaller chunks for easier reading. All sections are cross-linked. It all contains an amazing amount of information.

In his covering email alert to these changes, Brian says this:
Quote:
It seemed best to consolidate Part I before going on to Part II because the one is the foundation for the next. As Part I applied quantum realism to the observed, Part II will apply it to the observer. The logic of Part I was that if the quantum world is real, the physical world must be virtual, unless you have two realities (dualism). Following the logic, if only the quantum world is real, our “self” must also be produced by it. But tying this strange thought into what others have written and the known data is another matter!
Part II will contain the in-progress chapter 6 on Consciousness, so it will be very interesting to see how he approaches that one!
