Niayesh Afshordi on Holographic Universe Media Spin & the Iranian Brain Drain

Suzan Mazur: How close is the goal of combining Einstein’s theory of relativity and quantum physics? Something Kostas Skenderis at the University of Southampton has described as a new paradigm for physical reality.

Niayesh Afshordi: We don’t know. Physicists have been chasing this goal for the past 80 years. We’d like to think that we’re closer than before. There have been new insights, theoretical and observational insights. But whether those are real, it’s difficult to say.

Suzan Mazur: Your holographic universe research has been widely touted as “the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram.” Would you say that that is an accurate description?

Niayesh Afshordi: I think that’s a little bit of an exaggeration. It is the first possible holographic description of our observed universe. There is evidence but it’s not necessarily very strong evidence.

For practical reality of our everyday life, three dimensions seems to be sufficient and accurate. But for the fundamental reality, it’s very hard to tell and we don’t know. We don’t really have access to the fundamental reality of space and time. That’s the question of quantum gravity, the question that has eluded us for the past 80 years. What is the fundamental reality of space and time? There are various theories but there is no definite conclusion about that. More.

He concludes, refreshingly, with an appeal to avoid intense attachment to any one theory but rather let data decide.

    If only Darwinists could be so honest with their theory.

    So exactly how does one get what is temporal from what is timeless and/or eternal? The Bible answered that question long ago,,,

    Genesis 1:1
    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

    A few supportive quotes:

    “My argument,”/Dr. Penzias concluded, “is that the best data we have are exactly what I would have predicted, had I had nothing to go on but the five books of Moses, the Psalms, the Bible as a whole.”
    Dr. Arno Penzias, Nobel Laureate in Physics – co-discoverer Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation – as stated to the New York Times on March 12, 1978

    “Certainly there was something that set it all off,,, I can’t think of a better theory of the origin of the universe to match Genesis”
    Robert Wilson – Nobel laureate – co-discoverer Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation
    – Fred Heeren, Show Me God (Wheeling, Ill.: Daystar, 2000),

    “The question of ‘the beginning’ is as inescapable for cosmologists as it is for theologians…there is no doubt that a parallel exists between the big bang as an event and the Christian notion of creation from nothing”
    George Smoot and Keay Davidson, Wrinkles in Time, 1993, p.189. – George Smoot is a Nobel laureate in 2006 for his work on COBE

    “Now we see how the astronomical evidence supports the biblical view of the origin of the world. The details differ, but the essential elements in the astronomical and biblical accounts of Genesis are the same: the chain of events leading to man commenced suddenly and sharply at a definite moment in time, in a flash of light and energy.”
    Robert Jastrow – Founder of NASA’s Goddard Institute – ‘God and the Astronomers’ – Pg.15 – 2000

    Verse and video

    2 Corinthians 4:18
    So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

    Of semi-related note. Inspiring Philosophy has a new video up:

    The Death of Materialism – InspiringPhilosophy – video
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM0IKLv7KrE
    Materialism has been dead for decades and recent research only reconfirms this, as this video will show. This video was reviewed by physicist Fred Kuttner and Richard Conn Henry. A few other physicists reviewed this but asked to remain anonymous for privacy reasons.
