Big Bang Discovery Opens Doors to the “Multiverse”
Gravitational waves detected in the aftermath of the Big Bang suggest one universe just might not be enough.
Bored with your old dimensions—up and down, right and left, and back and forth? So tiresome. Take heart, folks. The latest news from Big Bang cosmologists offers us some relief from our humdrum four-dimensional universe.
Gravitational waves rippling through the aftermath of the cosmic fireball, physicists suggest, point to us inhabiting a multiverse, a universe filled with many universes.
ive been thinking about death. i can clearly remember the first time i comprehended death. i was around the age of 6 or 7, i believe, i think it started with my mom accidentally referring to death in conversation around me. she explained the best she could that death was something that happens to everyone, and that once it happens, you are no longer alive. this terrified me. i cried the rest of the day because i was so scared of ceasing to exist. that was the limitations of my understanding at the time, and ive grown since.
these days when i think about death, i cant help but ask questions like “what is death?” “what is life?” and “if life and death are only possible with the promise of the other, what happens when they meet?” ive heard various theories as to what happens to us after death, and i know none can be proven, but for some reason i still have an unsheathed desire to find an answer. is it possible that we go to a place above the clouds, made of light and the souls of our loved ones and everything we perceived as “good” in our life? is it possible that when we get there we are given the answers to why we had to live for an infinitely short amount of time in comparison to the eternity that we are rewarded with? and is it possible that inversely there is a place of punishment and doom and infinite terror to punish us for the way we acted for a few years on a physical world that doesnt even matter anymore? this is what ive been told my whole life and just now i am finally beginning to question it for myself.
i believe we are beyond our bodies. bodies, clothes, accessories, pictures, IDs, everything that describes us is simply that, a description of our selves in the physical universe. maybe our minds, our souls, our consciousness needs a life form to be physical, but it is not who we are. it is only a vessel. does the consciousness need a life form to exist beyond the physical universe? if death is the extraction of our consciousness from a body, can it continue to be, or does it too cease to exist?
anyway i just finished watching Evangelion Neon Genesis so my mind just got fucked by a giant thought-dildo.
lately ive been thinking about a lot of things outside the parameters of “normally thought about things.” such as life, consciousness, space, time, infinity, etc. and so far it has been an eye-opening journey. im struggling to find an anchor though, and if i dont soon, i will most certainly turn into a crazy person.
for instance tonight, i began watching a show called continuum (a show on netflix which deals with time travel), and this sparked my mind into running off on the tangent of “is time travel possible, and if so, what are its limitations?” i proceeded to do nothing but think about this for the next 6 hours. on one hand, i feel like a cliche degenerate who just wasted the past 6 hours sitting on his couch doing nothing, while on the other hand, i feel like i have a firm understanding (or at least belief) on the matter and an answer to the above question. which is awesome. but also crazy.
i wont begin to explain my theory on the dimension of time, as it would probably be impossible to anyway. but i must say, waking up is exciting.
