I understood nothing about what Robert Lanza was trying to say, and neither did Art. The idea that nothing would exist if it weren't for our consciousness is tough to wrap your cigarette around. The cool thing is that Art is not afraid to show his confusion and frustration about a topic that he feels is important, because, in the end, truth and enlightenment are not easy roads to follow, and sometimes you gotta knock your head against the wall until something clicks. Lanza was also a bit of a prude, and if he was such a great mind, he would have figured out an easier way of explaining it.
George would have worn out his "good point", and "absolutely", to ad nauseum.
Art's emphasis on the word "unscreened" (open lines) was definitely a shot across the bow to George's super controlled love fest, and I dug the fact that Art doesn't feel the need to say, "yeah, I remember you!", every time some yokel mentions that he spoke to Art five years ago.
