strange science

Today in biology I learned that both the development of agriculture and the industrial revolution happened around 1600.. maybe my teacher should probably stick to teaching the biology. She's scatter-brained enough as it is..


Exploring Stephen Hawking's Flexiverse @ New Scientist
HERE'S how to build a universe. Step one: start at the beginning of time. Step two: apply the laws of physics. Step three: sit back and watch the universe evolve. Step four: cross your fingers and hope that it comes out looking something like the one we live in.

That's the basic prescription for cosmology, the one physicists use to decipher the history of the universe. But according to Stephen Hawking of the University of Cambridge and Thomas Hertog of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the steps are all backward. According to these physicists, there is no history of the universe. There is no immutable past, no 13.7 billion years of evolution for cosmologists to retrace. Instead, there are many possible histories, and the universe has lived them all. And if that's not strange enough, you and I get to play a role in determining the universe's history. ...


Was reading that earlier during class.. ee, and I think some people here would find it really interesting. Just got that issue in the mail, so can show it to people. It actually ties really well into the world I was creating for pShift. It always interests me when something spontaneously pops into my brain like that, and then a couple years later shows up like this.. ehe
