I don’t know in science

Recommended Posts

That’s not what science says, as you’ve now been told about 17 times in this thread alone, and more times in others. 

If your intention here is to remind us all that humans are only about half a chromosome different from chimpanzees, then you are succeeding wonderfully.

You have been told numerous times, during the past week, the mechanisms for vacuum decay.
And if you say you haven't I will put up ALL the links/quotes and call you much worse names than INow has.

You have also been told that the general consensus is that no more phase changes and symmetry breaks are thought to be possible.
But there is always a very slim possibility since the Higgs boson mass is close to the critical value; more research with the top quark will tell us for sure.

How possible is vacuum decay in our lifetime with what was found at lhc?

So, not very possible, at all.
But what exactly was found at the LHC that would lead you to believe this ?
Please provide a LINK and a QUOTE.
And don't say temperature < 0 again...

I’ve been trying hard to see things from his perspective, but my anatomy prevents me from getting my head that far up my ass.

why do all articles state if it is possible billions of years from now if everything in science is I don’t know what’s real?

Below is the information you want, posted in another thread. Study it in detail. Carefully study the followup from Strange.

Not sure what you mean 

e.g. you have one radioactive atom.

Probability of decaying it ever is 100%. But you don't know when it will happen. But again you can calculate probability of decay happening this second, the next minute, the next year, the next millennia (from half-life or mean-life).

You can take more radioactive atoms sample. And again you can calculate probability of decay of one, couple or the all atoms.

Replace radioactive atom by lottery balls or roulette.

On the roulette we have 37 fields (some US versions 38). If you will place a bet on one field you will have 1 per 37 chance of winning (2.7%). Place a bet on two fields and you have chance of winning 2/37=5.4%. Place a bet on x fields and you have x/37=2.7(027)%*x chance of winning in the next round. Place a bet on 37 fields and you have 100% chance of winning.

Similar calculations can be applied to everything. Probability of dying somebody today, dying caused by cancer caused by cigarettes, or working in mining industry, or burning fossil fuel (or the all three causes together), dying caused by car accident, dying caused by airplane accident, extinction caused by collision with asteroid, extinction caused by Gamma Ray Burst from star explosion. etc. etc. You seem to like such apocalyptic subjects.

Such calculations are done by insurance companies. If they will calculate probability of some accident happening incorrectly, they can bankrupt having to pay more money than they collected from their customers.

To be able to predict probability of something happening regardless if it is roulette or Gamma Ray Burst, you need to have enough information about the subject. In the second case you need a list of the all stars in galactic neighbourhood with distances, masses, ages, types of star (and working model of evolution of star) etc. From these data scientist can calculate probability of GRB event happening and arriving to the Earth in the next year, the next century, millennia, or the next million of years..

Even if we gathered the all data carefully there is chance that previous models were slightly incorrect and scientists forgot or were unaware about something essential. Models are reviewed and updated, as new data arrives.

e.g. hypervelocity star (supernova-to-be) or even hypervelocity black hole might end up many living beings civilizations which were previously prepared for cosmic scale extinction events..

e.g. hypervolicity star (supernova-to-be) or even hypervolicity black hole might end up many living beings civilizations which were previously prepared for cosmic scale extinction events..

So your saying that vacuum decay will possibly happen in our lifetime 

sorry I am not understanding your statement
