Quantum Theory May Explain Wishful Thinking. http://www.physorg.com/news158928941.html
Step by step science isre approaching truth; written long ago in The Mythologies.
First the error made by theologests, in Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: No matter which way one slices it; an image is not the real thing; it is, a one dimensional copy; drawn on paper; or reflected in a mirror like surface. Three dimensional math can not be used to give a true answer to the multiple dimensions available in an illusion. But all things that have ever been written; can be answered; if the Cosmos is viewed as a phonically shaped illusion.
Wishful thinking is a centuries old cause of "humans errors" Starting with the error in Genesis 1:26 quoted above; even to their denial of it; when later they were advised; "They had no preeminence over the animals: but till this day; many consider themselves to have god status.
Ecclesiastes 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
I think it is written "Pridecommeth before afall""
