So -- please share this with us.
But, before you do, please warn us if you have some idiosyncratic meaning
for the term "empirical." What I, at least, mean by it is "verifiable or
provable [i.e., falsifiable] from observation or direct experience."
Etymologically it derives from the Greek "empeirikos" which means
Then, just one more preliminary (I have even a higher standard for
scientific "laws" than that they be merely empirically verifiable) and
that is that any scientist, by following the described procedure, can
replicate the results claimed. This means, in the case of spiritual
matters, that you may not require that I be "of the faith" in order to
"experience" what you describe. So, if you have "a way to demonstrate
empirically that a law of entropy production happens in the spiritual
world," it must not require religious faith from the scientist who wishes
to understand or replicate its demonstration.
So, to summarize the challenge: Please explain your empirical
demonstration of the law of entropy production in the spiritual world
without (1) messing around with the meaning of "empirical;" and without
(2) requiring us to share your religious beliefs or faith. If you can do
this, I promise that I will listen attentively and with all the skepticism
that I typically use when learning to understand any purportedly
