And don't get any ideas about traveling between the universes, Poplawski adds. The physics of wormholes are similar to the physics of black holes. If you could ever pass through the event horizon of the wormhole to visit the universe on the other side, you could never return. "You will be stuck," he says.


GB2RL. We can pass through wormholes just fine Twisted Evil

Another fantastical theory brought to you by scientists.

Like multiple universes, existing in a computer (matrix) or the big crunch, has no bearing on our life besides the fantasy of nerds.

It has no bearing on the life of farmstock that they don't know they are being farmed. The cows, the chickens and the sheep are quite content. They are looked after by the farmers, they are fed. Even in death they don't know they are farmed.

What I am saying is that there is more out there than humans can perceive or grasp like there is more than other animals can grasp. With all our technology we have not fundamentally moved beyond what Plato said about our sense of self and of others.

Having skimmed the article.... He postulates that the universe exists in a wormhole caused by the collapse of a massive star, which is linking us to another universe. That star must have been ridiculously huge, beyond what is possible (bigger stars burn their fuel faster so there must be a cap on size). If this collapsing star gave us all the matter/energy in the universe, thats a whole lotta star.

Fixed. I bet you my left kidney that this Nikodem Poplawski said something vaguely related to universal origins and wormholes, and the reporter filled in the bits he didn't understand with twaddle.

It's somewhat unreasonable to expect the common man to care. I was talking to someone today about research into renewable energy (the world will run out of fossil fuels sometime in the future) and having difficulty explaining that the world doesn't end when they die. They said "taking 150 years to get a full return on an investment is a waste. I won't live to see the return" To which I responded the future isn't all about you. What about your children, grandchildren? "I'll be dead."

That is the limit of the minds of some. They can't see beyond themselves.

That is why humanity is a failure as a whole. Until that fundamental thought changes on a large scale there will always be scarcity, hunger, greed, murder, materialism, ****. Many of the problems that exist in today's society are due to a lack of thought or foresight. Sometimes committed by those incapable of either. The most dangerous person is the uneducated and inexperienced for they have the capacity to radically destroy anything they get their hands on.
