The Double-Slit Experiment as Koan
by Marie Guyman

We need not be so worried about the double-slit experiment.

It doesn't matter if reality make no sense to you,
it makes sense to me.

And that is all that counts.

So what if matter can display characteristics of both waves and particles,
depending on whether or not you are noticing?
It doesn't matter to me.

I would use it as a koan and mediate on it.

If I had the time.
