I have no idea if Eric Weinstein is a misunderstood genius or not. Hopefully history will redeem him if he is. This caveat at the top of his research paper is not indicative of trustworthy, serious science though:
> ∗The Author is not a physicist and is no longer an active academician (...) This work of entertainment is a draft of work in progress which is the property of the author and thus may not be built upon, renamed, or profited from without express permission of the author. ©Eric R Weinstein, 2021, All Rights Reserved."
Given such a glaring admission, I'm surprised at the pushback the parent comment is getting. Or is it worded like this for some obscure, legal reason?
