Lee Smolin Confirms C.S. Lewis’ Prediction

Mike1962 reminds me of this from Lewis:
Men became scientific because they expected Law in Nature, and they expected Law in Nature because they believed in a Legislator. In most modern scientists this belief has died: it will be interesting to see how long their confidence in uniformity survives it.
CS Lewis, Miracles
And that reminded me of Lee Smolin’s thesis in his book, The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time:
1) There is only one universe at a time. Our universe is not one of many worlds. It has no copy or complete model, even in mathematics. The current interest in multiverse cosmologies is based on fallacious reasoning.
2) Time is real, and indeed the only aspect of our description of nature which is not emergent or approximate. The inclusive reality of time has revolutionary implications for many of our conventional beliefs.
3) Everything evolves in this real time including laws of nature. There is only a relative distinction between laws and the states of affairs that they govern.
