Ig Nobel Prize winner Deepak Chopra is offering $1,000,000 (a million dollars) to any critic who can explain — to Dr. Chopra’s satisfaction — why Dr. Chopra’s explanation of quantum phenomena is flawed. Details are in this video, and in an accompanying essay called “Getting Zombies Excited (It Takes a Million-Dollar Challenge)” published in the Huffington Post.
Dr. Chopra was awarded the 1998 Ig Nobel Prize for physics, for his unique interpretation of quantum physics as it applies to life, liberty, and the pursuit of economic happiness.
BONUS (possibly unrelated): The 2000 Ig Nobel Prize for psychology was awarded to David Dunning of Cornell University and Justin Kruger of the University of Illinois, for their modest report, “Unskilled and Unaware of It: How Difficulties in Recognizing One’s Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments.” [Published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, vol. 77, no. 6, December 1999, pp. 1121-34.]
