In a logical sense, every entity has an identity and a negation of its identity, so it is possible to mathematically and logically disprove most statements practically. That is not taking into consideration Godel’s Incompleteness Theorem or paradoxes. Read More
When you look in a mirror, and see what you think is a perfect reflection. You might be looking at a universe whose laws are fundamentally different.
In fiction and fantasy, magical characters can shape magical forces into constructs of physical forces. For example, Raven from DC Comics can create constructs from the dark energy of her soul form, Constantine can throw fireballs, and Zatanna can summon swords. Evocation in the Dresden Files specifically refers to conjuring blasts of fire, shields of air, and other forms of magical constructs that are physical things. When trying to give physicality to a magical or psychic construct, many people are unable to get it to physically interact with anything, and based on that lack of interaction, some people conclude that Read More
Debates around morality and ethics are frequent discussions in occult and magical communities. These arguments are so common that some occult communities forbid arguments and discourse on magic that appears to violate a person’s agency. Some rules ban working magic on someone without their consent, albeit it is unenforceable strictly from the perspective of being a rule of a platform. Enfolded into these conversations is whether magic has rules or if karma exists. Examples are arguments about whether people should or should not use magic to curse people or influence people such as to coerce or negate their ability to Read More
Physicists have been struggling for some time to figure out why our universe is so comfy. Why, for example, are the fundamental constants – like the mass of the electron or the strength of the forces – just right for the emergence of life? Tweak them too much and life, stars, galaxies, the universe as we know it wouldn’t exist.
The universe is big, but it’s peanuts compared to the eternally inflating multiverse. But just how many universes are there? What are they like? And most importantly, what can they tell us about … aliens?

Or are you going to a parallel universe which is 99.99% the same, the only difference being that the new one has the changes you desire? I wrote: Yes, this reality is shifting.

One of the most startling possibilities is that our 3+1 dimensional universe may better described as resulting from a spacetime one dimension lower – like a hologram projected from a surface infinitely far away.
On this Space Time Journal Club we look at how gravitational waves can be used to search for extra dimensions of space!
There’s this idea that beauty is a powerful guide to truth in the mathematics of physical theory. String theory is certainly beautiful in the eyes of many physicists. Beautiful enough to pursue even if it’s wrong?
Some see string theory as the one great hope for a theory of everything – that it will unite quantum mechanics and gravity and so unify all of physics into one glorious theory.
