Billions of dollars and a hundred years spiked with fruitless theory may not sound like the human race is getting far in its study of its own world,
but the frustration around the science is one thing we do know for certain.
This is a quote from the website “Space.com”: “In 2014, scientists announced that they had detected gravitational waves left over from the Big Bang using the Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization (BICEP2) telescope in Antarctica. It is thought that such waves are embedded in the cosmic microwave background. However, further research revealed that their data was contaminated by dust in the line of sight.”
I’m not making this up!
Could-a been Einstein was right …
Could-a been some dust!
Maybe they just need a “BICEP3,” and maybe it’d be designed to see what it’s looking for, invisible black holes, instead of just the invisible gravitational waves that support black holes theoretically! There’s something not only expensive but preposterous Continue reading “The Press’s Version Of Some Things”
My base position is skeptical, as it should be when looking at claims about the universe! Evidence is not made just because a theory satisfies reason and is not yet disproven or better-proven. I believe time does not exist separately from the movement of objects, and philosophy itself, if applied with gut-wrenching honesty, may be the piece missing from everything theory, but sometimes replaced based on insecurity with distortion, hyperbole and misrepresentation.
It seems obvious everything is always in motion, and there need be no fixed time of reference in the universe (mostly because we are always moving as observers), or, if there were, it would be something along the lines of “God’s time,” where God exists based on death-related speculation, which unavoidably begins to knit spiritual concepts into the realm of the not-understood, including “everything real,” and everything known; spirituality is a natural part of human perspective.
Saying there’s a master time reference point is like saying there’s something in the Universe that doesn’t move. Our experience of time is part of our ecology; we are a subset of the universe.
I also believe if time dilates (changes rate when the observer is moving), more when the speed approaches the speed of light, as a result the entire experience of the observer must change appropriately, including his experience of distance; things might change apparent size but he would still be able to see the smallest of them. He might, at near the speed of light, approach an unimaginable state of omnipresence. At the speed of light, light itself would no longer have “speed,” Continue reading “My Version Of Everything”
That’s right! 25-billion-dollars will be given to one lucky reader!
Somebody’s gonna be rich – why not you? Don’t delay, just simply give me your First Name, your Email Address, and your Eyeballs. That’s all I need. In return, you will be entered into the “Marvelous Mark Makes Me Mucho RICH” (Amazon Event Code # MMMMMR) contest, during which one lucky winner will receive 25-billion-dollars from my personal checking account, which has that much money in it.
More than that, actually. It’s not a big deal.
Or, at least I have my pride. That’s worth a lot.
And you’ll get lots of cool information and music and stuff.
I learned years-ago (long before Facebook) there are newspapers (and this is NOT related to the above-mentioned contest) which publish front-page news stories about Obama meeting with Aliens, or Beyonce taking her dress off on a faraway planet; you know, things that are sort of far-fetched … and these papers and magazines get away with telling their fake news simply because the news is SO far-fetched no-one could possibly believe it.
I don’t know why I wanted to mention that. It’s not related.
I wanted to give you a picture I drew years-ago at RISD of my cat, Boo Boo, who speaks fluent Spanish, but first I thought I should tell you something NOT IMPORTANT at all – so don’t worry about it, okay?
Business lunch break: This is possibly the best music video I’ve ever seen, and I don’t speak a word of French.
It’s internationally fabulous! Click and see!
I don’t care if you’re a Pink Floyd guy or a Kid Rock girl; this video will impress you. It’s like combining British rock with French sexiness, with clear layered rhythms and a light show that’d make Korn proud!
Thanks for watching! Please leave a comment, and subscribe!! 🙂 (If you’re wondering about the “Korn” reference, they’re a hard rock band that does great light shows!) Come back frequently to view this video – she ain’t goin’ nowhere!
