A Harvard scientist has an interesting theory as to how our universe was formed: in a laboratory by higher “class” of lifeform.
The idea is based on the work done at the university’s astronomy department, where they discovered signatures from remote galaxies that are 13 billion years old – predating even what we know about particle physics! This findings suggest there may be other universes out there with different laws than ours here on Earth; it seems possible this could happen when two branches off collision course last trillion plus decimal seconds before merging together again for another go around.
He shares that:
Inked in and op-ed in Scientific American this week positing that the universe could have been formed in a lab by an “advanced technological civilization.” If true, he said the origin story would unify the religious idea of a creator with the secular idea of quantum gravity.
“Since our universe has a flat geometry with a zero net energy, an advanced civilization could have developed a technology that created a baby universe out of nothing through quantum tunneling,” Loeb wrote.
He Believes Our Civilization is Class A
Humans are not the only ones to be classified into categories. Loeb posited that humans can also fit into low, medium or high levels depending on how advanced their civilization is considered by him/herself and others in its ecological niche–or host star’s ecosystem for those who depend entirely upon it as a life source! He suggests we’re at level C (a civilized creature).
The development of our technology has the potential to revolutionize society for generations. If and when we can become independent from solar radiation, then that would be class A status! We may not create baby universes in laboratories but I’m sure somebody out there does something even more mind blowing than what we do.
Of course, there are plenty of things in our way—the biggest hurdle being that we can’t create a “sufficient density” or dark energy within these tiny particles. But if and when do ever get it right, then maybe one day you could be part-owner to the next generation’s class A star!
The theory is compelling, humbling and a little bit frightening as well. What do you think it would be like to live in the perfect world with no limits?
In any case I believe that this new idea deserves consideration from everyone out there!
