  1. Are you saying that free will requires a god? That determinism is the only other option?
  2. Is it just me, or is the word parallel all wrong in this context? As far as I know it derives from the 'many worlds hypothesis', so what they must have meant is a multiverse, like in M-theory. Right? But even if they did mean a multiverse, how could a neighbor universe make voids in ours? Wouldn't its gravitational pull have the opposite effect?
  3. I love this subject. Time in accordance to relativity. If all aliens (incl. humans) in the universe gathered one place to establish universal time, it would probably look like the House of Commons during Brexit 😄
  4. I understand it perfectly well, I just interpret it differently than you do.
  5. But unlike the Wigner's experiment, you can google what happened to Mandela, and determine that one of them was mistaken. He did not die in prison, no matter how clearly the memory is. To me, the Wigner's experiment only shows, that a particle is capable of returning to the wave state, when observer A stops observing. So when observer B starts observing, the wave collapses again. It's a new event. Not the same event with two outcomes.
  6. In string theory the gravity is there. It's just out of reach. Is it really so silly to imagine a way to get it out? We know that a vacuum won't do it, so maybe the opposite could? Yes, I know it's speculation, thus the category of this thread.
  7. Positrons are very real, but difficult to contain, because they will annihilate when they come in contact with electrons, due to them being antimatter. That is one reason that they're useless as a source of electricity. Another reason is that we don't have enough antimatter to make an electrical system of it.
  8. I have that. I just need to learn the equations, which is easier said than done. Where do I start? Who's gonna tell me what all the symbols mean? I have the skills and the will, but no teacher.
  9. I cut the crusts off my sandwiches, but besides that I have almost zero waste. My freezer is so stuffed, that the plastic drawers in it have cracked 😁
  10. You are probably right, that DM is a much better answer. I'm just trying to chip in. Contributing to science is my highest aspiration.
  11. Very good point. I did not take gravitational lensing into account. My bad. But I might have a fix for that. I call it 'the lemon effect'. The lemon effect takes the hiding gravity from the extra dimensions of string theory. Under the enormous pressure inside stars, it is squeezed out from the particles in the nucleus. Like squeezing a lemon to make lemonade. The wormhole would arise when the star is formed. I don't know at what point the gravity would be strong enough to make it happen, but there would be a point. The reverse of that would answer this question: It would have to follow mathematical laws, like everything else in the universe, I suppose. That's what I'm here to figure out. Is this at all plausible? If not, thank you for helping me figuring that out!
  12. First of all I'd like to thank this forum, for allowing me to present my ideas. And let me say, I'm not an opponent of dark matter, just a little skeptical about it. I have for long been looking for a replacement for it. Something that wasn't undetectable, or atleast didn't require the total mass of the universe to be multiplied six times. Since I don't know the math of what I'm about to suggest, please be gentle with me, when you reject and disprove my suggestion. My suggestion is that wormholes are much more common than we thought. They are between all adjacent stars, and form an invisible gravity web, that makes stars able to form galaxies. Yes, it's quite simple, and just needs a slightly different approach to gravity. Of course these wormholes can't be used for travel. They're just strong enough for stars not to drift apart. Am I completely mistaken?
  13. Everybody is comforted in their beliefs. That's just how humans work. I did withdraw anything by putting it in quotation. And mentioned a couple of things I consider impossible. I'm not completely gullible.
  14. Wouldn't that be a fake divinity? I would definitively deem it fake. But yes, the biblical "god" could exist, as a puppet creator. Wouldn't that be hilarious? 🤣 Backwards time travel is a whole different problem. We would need to somehow gain control of the simulation computer itself, and reverse time. Would that even be possible? Would they allow it? I think the answer is a double no.
  15. HAHA! 🤣 "Anything" is only possible with deep future technology. There are things I consider impossible, like backwards time travel, and the existence of a divine creator.
  16. I agree that it's unfalsifiable, but my hope is that that will change in the future, however unlikely that is. Imagine a test that could only fail if we are simulated? Sounds improbable, but what if.... 😉
  17. Their processing power decides their speed limit, so 13 billion years could be done in a few hours or days. But you are absolutely right, I don't know anything. I just enjoy speculating about it. Some people enjoy chess or sudoku, I prefer to imagine how our universe/world could be simulated.
  18. Because it's too much work. If the simulation began last thursday, they would have had to fabricate 7.5 billion narratives and countless interactions. The easy way to do it, is just to let it all unfold on its own, from the big bang and till now. They might have adjusted a monkey to fit their idea of how we should look, but other than that, I think they avoided mingling too much. I actually dread having this discussion, because, although I might be a proponent, I'm not a believer, and some people here dislike it so much, that they push the red button on my posts. And I don't think it's worth the little good reputation that I have left. So I'd prefer if we discontinued this.
  19. As I said, they will one day concoct a test we can't even imagine today. That's my faith in science. I even have one in mind, but it will require a powerful quantum computer. Btw, I reject and despise last-thursdayism. I find it to be extremely naive and a direct insult to an otherwise valid hypothesis. Nothing is impossible, given enough time and technological advancement.
  20. All scientific theories have a degree of uncertainty, some more than others. So in that sense it's not standing out. Like Feynman said I think your faith in science is poor (or you are simply biased against it). I am sure they will concoct a test one day, that will satisfy even you, but I'm not sure it will be in our lifetime.
  21. Not entirely true. Nothing has been found yet, but they are looking for evidence in deep space: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1210.1847.pdf and other tests are on the way: https://ieet.org/index.php/IEET2/more/Edge20171230 http://www.ijqf.org/wps/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/IJQF-3888.pdf Maybe you've been too fast deeming it untestable and unworthy?
  22. The same could be said about string "theory", but as long as people with PhD's are researching it, it's science. But, as you pointed out earlier, we should respect the premise of the thread and stop. Or at least move this to a new thread.
  23. With all respect, that's not for you to decide. I did try to avoid getting deeper into it So, end of discussion from here.
