PainSci summary of Scerri 2004?This page is one of thousands in the PainScience.com bibliography. It is not a general article: it is focused on a single scientific paper, and it may provide only just enough context for the summary to make sense. Links to other papers and more general information are provided at the bottom of the page, as often as possible. ★★★★☆?4-star ratings are for bigger/better studies and reviews published in more prestigious journals, with only quibbles. Ratings are a highly subjective opinion, and subject to revision at any time. If you think this paper has been incorrectly rated, please let me know.
Although my evidence-based massage therapy practice attracted an unusually level-headed cross-section of society, for months of 2004 I was nevertheless besieged with giddy reviews of a film I loathe, What the #$*! Do We Know?!, because of its egregious interpretations of quantum physics and generally tedious new age sillyisms. But don’t take my word for it. Eric Scerri competently shreds the ridiculous scientific pretensions of the film. See also Wikipedia’s excellent article, which explains that David Albert, the most credible expert in the movie, “granted the filmmakers a near-four hour interview about quantum mechanics being unrelated [my emphasis] to consciousness or spirituality. His interview was then edited and incorporated into the film in a way that he claims misrepresented his views.”
