and while Gregg Braden is most definitely a crackpot, it is not like I’m the kind of person who only espouses establishment science and physics, and labels everyone else a “crackpot”.
Dr. Frank Tipler (website), for example (“The Anthropic Cosmological Principle”, “The Physics of Immortality”, and The Structure of the World From Pure Numbers), is often labeled a crank, (e.g. this article in Discover Magazine by Dr. Sean Carroll. For a more neutral treatment, see Part V of the book “Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstitions, and Other Confusions of Our Time” (1997) by Stephen Jay Gould).
I, however, cannot agree with those assessments, because the man is a genius of Mathematical Physics, and global General Relativity, and is operating on level of thought which is far beyond his critics, whether I agree with his conclusions or not … I respect the human mind which arrived at them.
