It turns out! Not only was space junk Oumuamua an “extraterrestrial lightsail” but our whole universe might be an alien’s experiment!

The stuff that comes out of Harvard these days and get published in Scientific American used to be tabloid news. What has changed?

As in the Schwinger effect, it is conceivable that a violent irritation of the vacuum potentially could create a baby universe. Whether that’s possible depends on subtle details and is a subject of active research, which I studied recently as the time reversal of a collapse to a black hole, with Paul Chesler, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative.

An artificial birth channel could have interesting implications for our own cosmic origins. If our universe was created in the laboratory of another civilization, one could imagine an infinite sequence of baby universes born out of each other by civilizations that developed the technological womb capable of giving birth to new universes. In this case, the umbilical cord of our big bang has its origin in a laboratory. Avi Loeb, “Endless Creation Out of Nothing” at Scientific American (December 12, 2020)

Well, JVL at 6, how be the system is in need of an overhaul? WHY do major media, discussing science, sound so much like the tabloids of old? Can we talk about this? At one time, I could have read this stuff at Midnite and Hush Hush. Okay, in 1962, I was a minor fetching milk from the newsstand store. I didn't read it because Mom wouldn't let me - but I could hardly avoid noticing the hedders in two-inch type. But now Mom (1924-2016) is gone and that kind of stuff is published in respected media. I wouldn't mind knowing why. News
Martin_r: from NBC news: Gee, I thought NBC and the other main-stream media could not be trusted. :-) JVL
News @2 how crazy is it? look at this article .... this is crazy, THE FOLLOWING IS NOT A HOAX !!! from NBC news: "Former Israeli space security chief says extraterrestrials exist, and Trump knows about it" "A "galactic federation" has been waiting for humans to "reach a stage where we will understand... what space and spaceships are," Haim Eshed said. From what i could understand, this guy Haim Eshed is a respected professor and mainstream scientist, although retired and pretty old now... full news: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/weird-news/former-israeli-space-security-chief-says-extraterrestrials-exist-trump-knows-n1250333 martin_r
>a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative. Where a lot of money goes in, but nothing much comes back out. EDTA
Baby Universe, birth channel, technological womb, umbilical cord? Is this author suffering from female/motherhood envy? Fasteddious
Shouldn't we be asking, how crazy is it that SciAm is publishing this stuff? News
But what if the vacuum was using a diaphragm while it was being violently irritated? Did the irritator request and sign a notarized consent form before starting the violent irritation? polistra
