Further to “BBC: Inflation (multiverse) theories only work if supplemented by ‘exotic physics’” (Try this “exotic physics” thing out next time you are disputing a traffic ticket):
They’re already spin-doctoring. We are on either the third or fourth iteration of inflation models. These are not “the simplest” ones. These are already highly tuned to 1:10^100 which is not a very simple thing. Inflation was an “exotic” idea and we don’t need another “exotic physics” to take its place, we need plain Jane physics to bring sense back to the community. We need to stop funding this rot.
