The Universe Is a Paradox

Based on what we know about physics, the universe as we know it should not exist.  Scientists posit that it should of been destroyed not long after it was formed. As to why it wasn’t, stands as one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in science. Host Hank Green of SciShow explains.

Immortality Within Reach

Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku tells us that science’s Connectome Project will soon have the technology to map the pathway of the entire human brain, paving the way for genetic and digital immortality. “It will map all your memories, quirks, personalities, everything digitized,” says Kaku. “And, it will put it on a disc, and for the most part, will put it in libraries.” Imagine visiting a library of the future and conversing with Einstein or Churchill? Kaku elaborates in this episode of Big Think.

Search for Hidden Dimensions

Theoretical physicist Brian Greene says that although we are immersed in our three-dimensional world in day-to-day life, we have found it useful to imagine that there may be more realms. “We have found, at least theoretically, using mathematics, if you engage that possibility of more than three dimensions, certain problems in physics admit to a solution.” He explains further in this presentation sponsored by the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.

God’s Fingerprint

“Fibonacci numbers are of interest to biologists and physicists because they are frequently observed in various natural objects and phenomena. The branching patterns in trees and leaves, for example, and the distribution of seeds in a raspberry are based on Fibonacci numbers.

A Sanskrit grammarian, Pingala, is credited with the first mention of the sequence of numbers, sometime between the fifth century B.C. and the second or third century A.D. Since Fibonacci introduced the series to Western civilization, it has had a high profile from time to time. Recently, in The Da Vinci Code , for example, the Fibonacci sequence is part of an important clue.”

And here, SerialBrain2 connects the dots, drawing upon the Fibonacci work in mathematics, physics and biology, to begin to show the intelligent design of galaxies and star systems, as well as some of the nefarious forces here on planet Earth that are intent to hold us back, to block our knowledge and to drive a wedge between mankind and our creator.

Was Einstein Wrong?

The Theory of Relativity is one of the foundations of modern physics, along with Quantum Theory. So it came as a monumental shock to scientists when the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland, conducted an atom-smashing experiment that concluded that Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity might be wrong. “All hell broke loose in the physics community,” says Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at City College of New York. Kaku explains in this educational edition of Big Think.

Einstein’s Gravity

In 1907 a young Albert Einstein was looking for a way to extend his special theory of relativity to include acceleration. It took him eight years to come up with the mathematical solution that we know as the general theory of relativity.
