From the Words-R-Worlds-Dept.

It is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge of what energy is. We do not have a picture that energy comes in little blobs of a definite amount. It is not that way. However, there are formulas for calculating some numerical quantity and when we add it together it gives “28″—always the same number. It is an abstract thing in that it does not tell us the mechanisms or the reasons for the various formulas

--Dick Feynman

Plus Wittgenstein's idea that all philosophical problems (which includes notions of identity, causality, determinism, metaphysics, etc) are problems of language

Energy IS immaterial. It IS action.

We can call energy spirit if we want.

Dualism works.

The immaterial can become material and vice versa.

And we can predict very accurately its behaviour

And we human beings have figures this out


Might have to raise a flag

Or some Human Patriotic thing

And so it goes
