They are not principally data-driven. “In today’s fierce job market, fledgling scientists sometimes attempt to impress their senior colleagues with lengthy derivations marked by challenging mathematical complexity.” If he thinks evidence is important, that should rule out the multiverse.
Nope. Not a chance the proposed evidence will matter. The parallel universe folk probably don’t like our universe because it shows massive evidence of fine-tuning and that implies an intelligent origin. Any alternative theory will always be popular, irrespective of evidence.
Last April Astronomers finally detected some helium hydride in a gas cloud about 2900 light years from Earth.
The image is thought to establish that black holes really do exist; they are not just astrophysicists’ imaginings.
Because quantum mechanics “lacks a physical description of the measurement process. The open-access paper seems easy to read.
New Scientist suggests that split parallel universes would avoid the problem of messing with the past so that you don’t exist.
How about?: The Standard Model is terrible—until you compare it to string theory and the multiverse
In the post-science world, people can presumably define success according to their own frames of reference, in relation to their own facts and their own truths.
Of course, neither Wolchover nor Hossenfelder would be allowed to notice that design in nature is obvious but not inevitable.
If time were really all in our heads, we would never miss planes. Good thing modern cosmology does not need to be serious.
Not only is Ethan’s profession about to get a major readjustment, but his attitude needs a readjustment as well. No longer can he and his colleagues hide in their ivory tower telling the world that we must leave the hard thinking to them. As many have already commented, the woke mobs are already at the gates.
Why not?: “The group found that for both types of black holes they examined, there is indeed a central singularity, and it is always spacelike. “
Arvay: Would not the multi-verse itself have to have parameters? Would not those also, have to fall within narrow ranges? And what principle of physics defines how many constants there are? What defines what ranges those parameters must have? What law of nature decides what the laws of nature must be? (That would be circular causation!) What governs the dice?
Some physicists think that information might escape a black hole via an escape route that involves a higher dimension.
It sounded like a great idea, no? Frustrating and weird separately but a breakthrough together? Not this one, it seems.
