We got one universe, but why can’t we have a second one? There are too many things we don’t know since we’re still too stupid!
For example, we don’t know what is really happening inside the black hole because we can’t go into the black hole to do an experiment. We can’t travel faster than light, meaning we can’t really go to the edges of the universe. Without knowing what is happening outside of our universe, we can’t really say we know enough to discard the idea of string theory!
Once in a while, there will be theory that blows our mind. For example, in this case we’re talking about string theory. I think we’re too foolish to close our minds from string theory.
Once upon a time, the ancient people discarded the idea that the atom is real, but now we all know that atom is very real. This example should give us pause to see why we should not be too quickly to discard the string theory.
Once in a while, fear not, because there will be an Einstein comes along who will work out the math/science to prove that a crap theory is a crap theory. So, if string theory is full of crap, such a person will prove it to be so, but if it’s the juicy stuff — we will know, right? Meanwhile, I think we should be more open mind since we don’t know enough, eh?
What I’d written above was meant as a comment for “Should we abandon the multiverse theory? | Sabine Hossenfelder, Roger Penrose, Michio Kaku” YouTube video, but somehow YouTube refused to post my comment. Anywho, I’m posting this on my blog instead. Check the video out right after the break.
If my memory isn’t too disconnected, then quantum mechanics — to how I remember best — is a science describing the smallest of the smallest matters and realms in which everyday physics rules do not apply. Quantum mechanics would try to explain the inner working mechanism of the smallest realm that forms particles that are even smaller than electrons – and these particles form electrons and other similar matters. To this day, the inner working mechanism of the quantum realm isn’t so clear, and so scientists sometimes can’t explain such as why one particle can appear to be at two different places at the same time. Theoretically, scientists like to think every matter in the universe is a wave of some sort, and this wave of some sort allows any matter to appear to be in multiple places at once.
So, I imagine, you could too, that quantum mechanics could be like mechanics that allow our universe to import features from a superclass universe in which the inner working mechanisms of these features won’t be revealed to the human mind since the human mind is boxed inside this universe. Perhaps by chance, the superclass universe is generous that it would allow a mechanism to allow the quantum mechanics to reveal the thread back to itself, but to find out this truth I surmise it won’t be easy. Regardless, it’s not so hard for any of us to imagine this universe of ours is an object which could have been born from a superclass object like how a programmer could create a new object from a superclass without knowing how the superclass was created. If this is true, we could easily tempt to believe that this universe of ours is just one object among many hundreds of billions of similar objects out there that were also instantiated from the superclass universe.
My imagination runs wild like a horse in the wild today, and so today it’s all about black hole and infinity and Calculus. To tell the truth, I’m not at all great in math, and so Calculus is so out there for me. Furthermore, I have not been back to school for ages, and so I might be a thousand miles away from the right answer when I’m trying to do a complicated math problem such as a hard Algebraic problem and so forth. Still, I’m a carefree person sometimes, and today is that day when I don’t care if I’m right or wrong.
According to the YouTube video right after the break, a black hole is formed because of the massive gravitational collapse of a dead star. Personally, I like to say a massive gravitational implosion because it sounds cooler! Anyway, the video right after the break explains how black hole forms in detail.
Today, I imagine that because of massive collapse or implosion of dense gravitational strength which, in my opinion, allows the core of a dead star not really was squashed into nothingness but was pushed so hard that it stretched and ripped a hole of our 3D/4D spatial space — thus pushing and ejecting the core of the dead star through another spatial dimension. This way, as if you can imagine that a hypersonic plane got punctured with a massive hole and thus anything got closer to the hole would get eject and suck out of the plane. The hypersonic plane is the container or the fabric of our 3D/4D spatial dimension and the outside is a bigger dimension that imprisons our 3D/4D spatial dimension.
Why black hole is always round like a circle and not a square? You know, if you push a ball through a massive piece of easy to be ripped tissue, you could probably create a square or a weird shape of the hole in the tissue right? Here comes the part of infinity and Calculus — hence circle.
Since Calculus was probably started by the ancient mathematics geniuses who were hypnotized by trying to work with a circle or whatever was more meaningful than a circle that led to their wonderment of infinity. Since a circle isn’t a straight line, in Calculus, I guess we could imagine a circle is a composite of infinitely small straight lines that form a circle in an orderly connected directional position. Hence infinity’s involvement since we don’t really know curve that well and have to use our imagination of using a straight line with infinity to form a circle. I guess, through infinity, a constant of the unknown, we find changes in infinitely small intervals. (My interval meaning isn’t a mathematical one but merely a point!) — So I guess Calculus is about finding the meaning of the change!
What has Calculus got to do with a black hole? In my opinion, a ball rips through a massive tissue isn’t the same as a massive collapse or implosion of gravity. According to the book “Infinite Powers: How Calculus Reveals the Secrets of Universe” by Steven Strogatz, and here I quote:
Mathematically, circles embody change without change. A point moving around the circumference of a circle changes direction without ever changing its distance from a center. It’s a minimal form of change, a way to change and curve in the slightest way possible. And, of course, circles are symmetrical. If you rotate a circle about its center, it looks unchanged. That rotational symmetry may be why circles are so ubiquitous. Whenever some aspect of nature doesn’t care about direction, circles are bound to appear. Consider what happens when a raindrop hits a puddle: tiny ripples expand outward from the point of impact. Because they spread equally fast in all directions and because they started at a single point, the ripples have to be circles. Symmetry demands it.
Thus my thinking is that since symmetry demands it, whenever something in nature which doesn’t care about the direction like the implosion of gravity — in our case the black hole — a circle must be formed in space that is so black as a black hole! As I mentioned above, the core of the dead star was collapsed and imploded so hard by gravity thus I think it probably got ejected through the ripped 3D/4D spatial dimension. Like a hypersonic plane that got a massive hole, anything near the hole would get ejected out to the other side. Whatever on the other side must be so exotic and our super special black hole makes things so impossible that even light cannot escape the grasp of the black hole.
In the video right after the break, the video suggests China is planning a mission for Mars in 2020. I assume they’re planning to send taikonauts to Mars in 2020 since the video is about how they had built a Mars simulation base for taikonauts on earth. I think this is amazing! Sending humans to Mars would be a new next biggest achievement for humans outside of earth! I can’t wait to see this happens in 2020!
Just a quick thought on why we’re alone or at least we think we’re alone! If you have read the Three-Body Problem sci-fi trilogy, then you may compel to agree with the author that other aliens don’t want to be seen at all costs! The idea is that once an intelligent world is being discovered it could be the end of it.
Imagine an intelligent world that is being developed to the point that it needs to colonize other planets to sustain its population and civilization. This world thus would go out of its way to strip resources of other planets and stars. The hungriness of such a world would not be stopped and it would grow infinitely until their technology got so great that they could outstrip an entire galaxy for resources.
Aliens might not want to see such a world to develop to such capacity that would compete against their own world, and so destroying an undeveloped world as fast as possible would be the easiest thing to do. Of course, we could not know what the aliens would think. Perhaps some aliens out there prefer peace over war. Perhaps, some aliens prefer to see the whole universe teems with colorful civilizations.
Personally, I think there could be aliens out there that are so developed and advanced to the point that they could hide in plain sight and we just don’t have the technology to see them. Some aliens could be so advanced that they don’t need to colonize and change the ecosystem of a planet for survival because they could modify themselves to fit into any environment! For all, we could know they could fly in a poisonous gaseous environment and would still feel like taking a stroll on a warm Sunday afternoon.
As we’re looking for a Goldilocks solar system to test our theory of finding existing alien life, these aliens may just be in plain sight but we won’t know it as we’re too focusing on the wrong environment. In short, we’re guessing but we could be off for miles. Perhaps, aliens don’t live in a Goldilocks environment? Perhaps they are and they have the technology to prevent us from seeing them or seeing their solar system?
