Random quote of the day:

“The very fact that our vision of the world can be falsified as a result of further movement, observation, probing, etc., implies that there is more in the world than what we have perceived and known.”

Random quote of the day:

 

“Let’s say that a ten-lane superhighway is being built next to [an] anthill. The question is: would the ants even know what a ten-lane superhighway is, or what it’s used for, or how to communicate with the workers who are just feet away? And the answer is no….If there is [another] civilization in our backyard, in the Milky Way galaxy, would we even known its presence?…There’s a good chance that we, like ants in an anthill, would not understand or be able to make sense of a ten-lane superhighway next door.”

—Dr. Michio Kaku, “Parallel Universes, the Matrix, and Superintelligence”

Random quote of the day:

Random quote of the day:

 

“The quantum theory of parallel universes is not the problem, it is the solution.  It is not some troublesome, optional interpretation emerging from arcane theoretical considerations.  It is the explanation—the only one that is tenable—of a remarkable counter-intuitive reality.”

—David Deutsch, The Fabric of Reality

Random quote of the day:

 

“Physicists are increasingly accepting the idea that there are infinite realities stacked together like the pages of a never-ending book.  So there are infinite versions of you, living out infinite different lives in infinite parallel realities.”
