marce, +1

if these scientists want be useful, why not to invest time into useful things like memristors research, etc.

Look guys, I am an audio analog engineer. I have both a new prototype phono preamp and a power amp on my workbench at the moment. I don't have time to research physics, but I do have ears, and I use them.

But its a chuckle, we must have had every cutting edge physics phenomena now associated with the Bybee's.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry laughing.

It sure has been funny watching the hole get bigger and deeper.

The difference between crap like Bybees and magic cables vs. the particle/wave duality discussed in that quote is that with the later there was reproducible EVIDENCE. With Bybees? Nothing but testimonials...

You must be joking! The image most people have couldn't be damaged any more.
You take yourselves way too seriously.

Just a pondering notion. But has anyone checked a bybee for radioactivity? That affect would certainly fit up to the 'proximity' claim made above.

You will need a meter that can read into the low uSv range.

I just found a parallel criticism deluge regarding another QM device (a test instrument) from the 1950's. Let me give you the quote:

"Now to a surprising number of people, this idea seemed not only heretical but patently absurd and they told us so in person, by letter, in publications, and by actually doing experiments which claimed to show that we were wrong. At the most basic level they asked how, if photons are emitted at random in a thermal source, can they appear in pairs at two detectors. At a more sophisticated level the enraged physicist would brandish some sacred text, usually by Heitler, and point out that ... our analysis was invalidated by the uncertainty relation...."
R. Hanbury Brown, THE INTENSITY INTERFEROMETER (Taylor and Francis, New York, 1974 p. 7.

Does this sound like some of you? '-)

Right, so quantum entanglement has been experimentally identified and applied. There is actual science behind that. So far I have not seen any real science in the support of Bybees.

If you could kindly send me some I promise to test them rigorously and post my genuine findings here, honestly.
