Says this German mag, in translation:
Farewell to the World Formula The laws of nature are ephemeral Natural laws are in line with established opinion to immutable component of the natural sciences. A physicist and a philosopher now say goodbye to the idea. by Edu
Why so and not otherwise?
Until recently was Lee Smolin, of the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo thinkers from Canada, expire this idea. But now he opposes her, along with the Brazilian philosopher Roberto Mangabeira Unger of Harvard Law School. They have a thick book published entitled “The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time”. In it they go from “most interesting feature of the natural world”, namely the fact “that it is what it is and not something else.”
As trivial as it sounds, so explosive is the thesis in professional circles. They attacked frontally string theory whose plurality of parallel universes considered our universe as a mere coincidence. The singularity theory emerged but deeper, quasi the source of the cosmic flow of time. Why it exists at all? According to the classical conception of time and space are not really physics, rather they form the “eternal” framework in which is happening the natural disaster. A metaphysical idea. Einstein’s greatest achievement in the general theory of relativity was that he transformed this metaphysics into physics, time and space melted the dynamic physical field of spacetime. But even this spacetime is still subject to immutable laws – the Einstein equations – that determine how matter transforms the space-time. But what happens when these laws themselves also changed?
No, we don’t entirely get it either, but they may be thinking of something like what Neil Turok was trying to say, at the Perimeter Institute in Canada: Grow up.
