A discussion community revolving around Eckhart Tolle but not limited to him
Ohm's law was probably the most important of the early quantitative descriptions of the physics of electricity.
We consider it almost obvious today.
When Ohm first published his work, this was not the case; critics reacted to his treatment of the subject with hostility. They called his work a "web of naked fancies" and the German Minister of Education proclaimed that "a professor who preached such heresies was unworthy to teach science."
The prevailing scientific philosophy in Germany at the time asserted that experiments need not be performed to develop an understanding of nature because nature is so well ordered, and that scientific truths may be deduced through reasoning alone.

So again I'd say, no choice is wrong, it truly does just bring a different 'experience' of a thing.

What can possibly be wrong with that?
Well, it's not wrong. But at the end of day, no matter how resonant a conceptual framework is, it is conceptual and dualistic.
The exploration of truth demands honesty. Attachment to particular views gets in the way of honest inquiry.

from wiki - maya ...The goal of enlightenment is to understand this — more precisely, to experience this: to see intuitively that the distinction between the self and the Universe is a false dichotomy. The distinction between consciousness and physical matter, between mind and body (refer bodymind), is the result of an unenlightened perspective.
