I’m still into black holes. Black holes and the big bang are our two blind spots, where we don’t have a full quantum gravity explanation. The entry and exit points of the universe. Maybe. :)

Speaking of which, in the news this week: potential progress on quantum gravity description of black holes. At greg’s old university: https://physicsworld.com/a/echoes-of-gr ... m-gravity/

Also, for Nicolai. Started looking at youtube vids for you, you unreading mens. Stumbled upon a collection from the Royal Institution (centuries old brit academy of science). Looks to have great stuff in there. Hours long layperson oriented talks by leading scientists on different subjects. Will watch more.

Watched this one yeasterday. Presentor is physicist and professor at Caltech. He basically says everything i’ve said in this thread, including a little feel good finale along the same lines of my « if you define yourself as physics, then you are part of what’s unfolding and not something apart from it » thingy. That seems to be the way to make peace with free will. Redefine what you are (it’s logically rigorous) or (easier) « pretend » you have free will at the macro level because, well, that’s how it feels and it’s a better way to go (ie. try to make a personal philosophy that is rational with goals you set out, keeping in mind that you are part of a whole).

One of my pet theories on the intersect between morality and rationality is game theory. I’ve posted before, but I’m sure you guys didn’t read. So I’ll post again for you guys not to read. Reason, as I see it, is an analytical tool that ultimately serves as a means to get a goal. The goal is not set by objective reality (ie. the universe or god doesn’t give you one). So, reason is morally agnostic. What I think constrains it is game theory. The best outcomes for all players as a whole is cooperation. Cheating will give a player a temporary advantage until others stop cooperating and the everybody loses. I think game theory, applied to human interractions, explains alot of morality (which I simply see as rules and principles, both genetic and social in origin, for social living because that’s what we are....deeply social animals). « Good » is what is good for social living. It’s not what would be good if we were solitary animals. Our concept of good is shaped fundamentally from our social nature. Turns out, you can mathematically map out social interractions. Game theory. Cooperation is the best outcome for all. Cheating gets you short lived gains, but ultimately brings the system down for all.

Morality by mathematics.

my completely unsubstantiated theory is that the black hole condenses all the matter that goes into it and creates a super-dense object which causes a new big bang in a new dimension / universe, which then expands and forms new planets and stars and new black holes which condense matter into the next big bang/universe, etc.

our universe is just one of an infinite number of universes which has come along as a consequence of a previous black hole which condensed to form one of an infinite number of big bangs.

eggs existed long before chickens ever did. the dinosaur that eventually evolved into a chicken was almost certainly hatched from an egg.

That multiverse theory (not really a theory, as it’s not testable at present) is a leading idea. A finite or infinite multiverse of universes popping in and out of existance. I’m intrigued by potential links between quantum fluctuations at the micro level (particles popping in and out of existence seemingly randomly), quantum entanglement (particles « attached » at distance) and recent theories of entanglement being a contortion of spacetime. An idea I’ve heard and keep in my nogging is of black hole being our macro equivalent to quantum entanglement for another « bigger » dimension and our quantum fluctuations being black holes in « smaller » dimensions. We would then be in a black hole and spacetime would be the entanglement between particles. You then get an image of a finite or infinite multiverse with basically driven by probabilistic entangled quantum fluctuations.

We don’t know what’s the ultimate cause or even if there is one. When looking for where the buck stops, tgere are two possibilities to me:

1. It’s random. We are accustomed to think of a mind causing stuff, but there may not be. A “primordial” mind is not more probable than a wholly secular explanation. Potential can be more fundamental (natural) than nothing. At the “base” you can have potential and potential sometimes will make our universe and you. May only make yours, may make many. Everything can potentially exist. Sometimes you get you in this universe. That seems counterintuitive because, again, in our macro world we are used to cause and effect and our perceptuon of volition (free minds) acting on the world. That, however, is an erroneous perception of our universe. Our universe is entirely probabilistic -it runs on probabilities with potential energy states restricted by other potential energy states on interraction. Giving rise to the quasi-stability of the macro world (but greg can still end up in Nepal in the next instant, just very unlikely because greg is made up of a huge number of particles interracting with potential energy states very heavily skewed towards greg staying put in the next instant).

2. The buck can stop at a mind. A mind is not what drives our universe, probability does. But a mind could have created our universe. Nothing hints towards that (and the probabilistic nature of our universe hints towards probability being fundamental) but it’s not impossible. We haven’t observed anything “outside” our universe. It’s possible it’s a primordial mind that sets it going. However, it’s not a mind in any of the existing religious sense. It would be a mind that set off, 15 billion years ago, a probabilistic chain reaction leading to you and, as entropy moves forward, the likely heat death of the universe.

We shouldn’t be rooting for one outcome over another. This shouldn’t be partisan. I think we should just try to get a decent laymens understanding of the current state of knowledge and believe what seems more likely given what we know. It will almost certainly be wrong. We are missing too many pieces. But we know enough to eliminate a bunch of potential explanations. It’s just about making best guesses based on reason and best evidence. And adapting as we learn new stuff. If tomorrow reputable publications start publishing what is believed to be evidence of some fundamental volition driving our universe, then I’ll start believing that. It’s not that I don’t want there to be a guiding mind. It’s that it’s nowhere to be seen and we’ve looked pretty deeply. It could be at the cause of the big bang 15 billion years ago. Maybe. But it seems more likely to that the probability that rules our universe also rules outside of it (but that’s just a guess). It could be that that there is nothing else « outside » our universe. It could be a mind that powered up his quantum computer and that mind could be primordial in some ontological sense. But, it would be very distant. The universe is very big and the big bang was a long time ago. That mind took one heck of a detour to make us. There may be a good reason for that. Or the good reason may be that there is no mind. If somebody wants to believe in a non interventionist big bang creating mind, I guess that’s fine. I think the probabilistic nature of our universe hints towards probability being fundamental, but there is no reasonnit should be. Bottom line, we have a decent sense from the big bang to now. Outside of it and whether there is anything, we have very little idea. We may be able to deduce stuff by studying black holes and the big bang (the first instants). Or that may forever remain inaccessible to us.

My first crush as an 8 year old spanish speaking panamanian-canadian immigrant was a romanian girl named Dorottya. I had no problems getting girls to smile at me in Panama, but in Canada, it was a different story. I tried to write a love letter in french and gave her a box of chocolates for St. Valentine's day; She ended up throwing out the letter without even reading it and took the chocolates.

Death to Romanians.

I threw away a lot of love letters without reading them when I was a highschool cutie. I remember one particular time the poor girl strated crying painfully. I never meant to do harm, in reality I was really shy and didn’t know how to deal with all the unwanted attention. I just wanted to be left alone. It was quite terrible, I would get a haircut and all the girls would start talking about it, felt a lot of pressure tbh.

Today I kinda miss it, go figure.

So don’t judge the girl, it could have been emotinal immaturity.
